Ahart A, Rutsch C, Morgan CH. 1991. Programs serving drug-exposed children and their families. Silver Spring, MD: Macro Systems, 2 v.

Annotation: This two-volume study examines ways in which existing programs or service delivery systems in four cities have adapted to meet the needs of drug-exposed children. Through telephone discussions with 25 expert individuals familiar with issues and programs serving drug-exposed children, the study team identified community programs that were designed or adapted specifically to meet the needs of drug-exposed children. Case studies were conducted in four cities—St. Petersburg, Portland, Los Angeles, and Chicago. The study team viewed programs, interviewed program staff, and visited community organizations. Case study findings were used to identify policy and service delivery issues related to meeting the needs of drug-exposed children and families. "Volume I: Cross-Site Findings and Policy Issues" and "Volume II: Site Visit Summaries and Program Descriptions" are each approximately 150 pages and may be ordered separately.
