Updated good practice guidance for all agencies and practitioners working with children, young people and families affected by problematic alcohol and/or drug use

Executive Summary

The purpose of the guidance is to provide an updated good practice framework for all child

and adult service practitioners working with vulnerable children and families affected by

problematic parental alcohol and/or drug use. It has been updated in the particular context of

the national GIRFEC approach and the Recovery Agendas, both of which have a focus on

‘whole family’ recovery. Another key theme is the importance of services focusing on early

intervention activity. That is, working together effectively at the earliest stages to help children

and families and not waiting for crises – or tragedies – to occur.
