Developed by the National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW), the modules are a five-part series on Plans of Safe Care (POSC) for infants born with and identified as affected by substance abuse or withdrawal symptoms resulting from prenatal drug exposure, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), or their affected family or caregiver. The series is intended to guide state, tribal, and local collaborative partners in improving their systems and services for infants affected by prenatal substance exposure and their families. The policy and practice strategies included in these modules are derived from NCSACW’s years of practice-based experience providing technical assistance to states, tribes, and communities. This series provides states and communities with considerations for implementing Plans of Safe Care to support the safety and well-being of families in their jurisdictions.
