Author: Pamela Petersen-Baston, M.P.A., CAP, CPP

This section will provide a strategic blueprint for all relevant parties in the opioid treatment and Child Protective Services (CPS) sectors and policy arenas as they work together on the intersection of child maltreatment and opioid and other substance use disorders (SUDs).  The blueprint provides an approach for how medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and other SUD treatment providers, CPS, family courts, and interested parties can work together in the coming years in early identification, screening, assessment, treatment, and recovery support services for families affected by opioid and other drug disorders and child maltreatment.
