According to research, early childhood abuse, neglect and other forms of trauma are highly predictive of later addiction. Learn how to take a preventative approach, both with children not yet involved with substance use and youth who are already experimenting or have already established a pattern of use with one or more substances. Informed foster parents are extremely influential!
