Spotlight on National Substance Abuse Prevention Month

This issue of CBX spotlights the effects substance use, particularly opioid use, can have on the well-being of families involved with child welfare. We also feature a message from Associate Commissioner Aysha E. Schomburg about the long-term effects natural disasters can have on the lives of children and the importance of making sure we are meeting their needs even after the storm passes. This issue also includes valuable resources for professionals and the families they serve.
