Substance abuse has a devastating effect on families, and it is especially challenging for low-income and minority fathers. This session addressed how practitioners can help fathers and families affected by the crisis.

The panel provided a backdrop review of the ever-evolving substance abuse prevention and treatment policies and practices in the U.S., as well as current trends and tensions in prevention and treatment. Presenters then described practical approaches fatherhood programs can employ to effectively help fathers and families challenged by substance abuse.
