PFR Briefs - News You Can Use


Children and Family Futures has produced a series of Prevention and Family Recovery (PFR) briefs that highlight cross-cutting lessons and experiences from the first round of PFR grantees about providing a comprehensive family-centered approach for children, parents and families affected by parental substance use disorders and child abuse and neglect.

The grantees’ journeys (from April 2014 through May 2017) provide valuable insights about the practice and policy changes needed for a Family Drug Court (FDC) to shift from being an independent, adult-focused program within the court to an integrated cross-systems collaborative centered on the whole family.  We hope the field can use these lessons and insights gained to replicate effective FDC practices in other communities.  

The series of PFR briefs includes:

Please also check out the companion set of PFR case studies (on the Site Profiles and Case Studies page) that tell a more in-depth story of each grantee’s PFR journey. 

As we embark on the PFR expansion with the second round of grantees awarded in January 2017, we look forward to further building the knowledge base about an effective family-centered approach.
