NCSEA Web-Talk: The Opioid Epidemic and the Impact on the Child Support Program

Date: October 30, 2019


Did you know that according to a 2016 National Survey on Drug Use, that 11. 5 million people abused prescription opioids and 2.1 million people had an opioid-use disorder? ​With numbers like this, it is not hard to imagine that many families all across our nation are impacted. This web talk will​provide information on the current state of the  ​epidemic  and how  ​it is effecting child support caseloads (think of the growing numbers of children being placed in foster care or kinship care).  How should the child support program respond to support the families we serve?  ​Hear about a new exploratory study by ASPE. ​What questions  should ​we be asking ourselves as we strive to help and make a difference?
