We strive to provide the best resources, information and answers for families struggling with substance use. Many of those resources are provided through our blogs – the Parent Blog for answers to your tough questions and perspective from families who have been there, the Partnership News Service for a curated digest of the drug-related news of the week, and our Newsroom for updates on how the Partnership is addressing the needs of families and their communities.
In case you missed it, the following were our most popular blog posts from January:

Honaker, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Family Therapist walks us through the ways by which family therapy aids addiction treatment by strengthening the family system.
