Research Center Focuses on Families Affected by Substance Abuse
The Child Welfare, Drug Abuse and Intergenerational Risk Research Center (CWDAIR) focuses on the design, development, and delivery of coordinated, evidence-based services for families in the child welfare system with drug abuse and co-existing problems, especially HIV/AIDS. The goal is to improve services for vulnerable families and children in the child welfare system in order to reduce the chance of intergenerational continuity of these interrelated problems.
CWDAIR, sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, is operated by the School of Social Welfare at the University of Albany, State University of New York. Services available include statistical guidance and data analyses, a mini-grants program, a seminar series, and research facilitation.
