Child and Family Services Review (CFSR)

The federally mandated Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSRs) are conducted by the Children’s Bureau, within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), to help States improve safety, permanency, and well-being outcomes for children and families who receive services through the child welfare system. The CFSRs assess all areas of child welfare services, including foster care, child protection, family preservation, adoption, and youth development. Because substance use disorders are identified so often as a major factor in child welfare cases, opportunities for substance abuse treatment professionals to participate in the CFSRs are a crucial part of the process.
