Guidance for Parents & Caregivers

The Partnership TO End Addiction has information to guide you through every step along the journey with your child. Whether you’ve only just uncovered substance use or your child has already cycled through rounds of treatment, we can help with support and evidence-based approaches.

Try to spot issues early

It's important to take any substance use seriously, but before acting on impulse, take a breath and review strategies for communicating effectively and encouraging positive behavior change.

Take action to help your child

There is no one-size-fits-all solution. Take time to understand available options and what to consider when selecting a provider or program for treatment. For those struggling with heroin or other opioids, treatment that incorporates medication may be an effective option.

Support your child through recovery

The end of treatment is the beginning of a much longer phase, recovery. Take steps to ease the transition and provide needed support.

Help your child & family heal

You likely feel frustrated, overwhelmed and helpless. There are proven approaches to helping your child address their substance use by shifting how you engage and communicate.
