Abstract

The popular press and government reports have given much attention to the harmful effects of the substance use epidemic on communities and states. These reports and other outlets often pay particular attention to the many powerful stories of individuals all across the country who have been damaged or lost their lives as a direct consequence of the substance use epidemic. To date, far less attention has been devoted to the effects of substance use on American families. Using a multi-method study design, and in partnership with IDPH leadership, we sought to identify the key concerns and ‘pain points’ of parents who use substances to better understand where policy and programming changes are needed to support Iowa families.
