Drug Endangered Children (DEC) Awareness – Identifying Drug Endangered Children: A Collaborative Approach

Friday, February 16, 2024
12:00 pm1:00 pm

Ignored, abused, and abandoned – these are some of the chronic conditions experienced by children raised in environments where there is substance misuse or illegal drug use, manufacturing, cultivation and distribution. Drug endangered children are part of a large and growing population of children whose lives have been seriously and negatively impacted by dangerous drugs. The Core DEC Awareness training looks at overcoming the challenges in aligning the agencies and systems responsible for preventing, intervening, and treating these issues to change the trajectories of the lives of drug endangered children and break multi-generational cycles of abuse and neglect.
