Option 2 reduces the use of care system in families where parental alcohol misuse is a factor, but what impact does it have on parental substance use, child welfare and family functioning?
Substance misuse severely affects families especially children. Members of Black and minority ethnic (BME) communities face additional complex issues.
The role of parents in preventing alcohol misuse: An Evaluation of the Kids, Adults Together Programme (KAT)
A key influence on the timing of young people’s first alcohol use is the family (Spoth et al. 2002) and a number of substance misuse prevention programmes (mainly in the USA) have tried to influence families. Most are based in schools, which potentially provide an efficient way to reach large numbers of young people and their families (Bryan et al. 2006). However, in practice, school-based initiatives have not always managed to engage significant numbers of parents (Lloyd et al. 2000; Rothwell et al. 2009; Stead et al. 2007; Ward and Snow 2008).
In order to gauge to what extent children are being exposed to alcohol advertising, Alcohol Concern decided to investigate the scheduling of alcohol adverts, and in particular to see the extent to which they appear on television before and after the 9pm watershed.
This review of projects seeks to develop a database of initiatives; services and projects that currently exist in the UK to support children and families affected by alcohol misuse. Also to analyse the range of services and summarise evidence of effectiveness.
