Objective 3

We will collaborate with our partners to connect parents in the child welfare system with opioid disorders to evidence-based treatment and link them with a peer recovery supporter.

  • Child Welfare agencies will use the UNCOPE assessment tool to screen 80% of parents entering the system for substance use disorders related to opioids.
  • 75% of those parents with an opioid use disorder will work with a family peer mentor.
  • The Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System (SACWIS), and the Needs Portal will be used to keep track of screening tools administered and data collection. 
  • The partner counties will have information on when family peer mentor matches are made and the frequency of the visits.
