Families in Recovery Series Looks at How Children are Impacted by Parental Substance Use
How does substance use by a parent impact young children? That’s the subject of episode one of a new “Families in Recovery” video series from SVG and the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. The episode features Jerry Moe, who worked for HBF as Executive Director of the National Children’s Program for 23 years and Carrie Bates, a three-time Olympic gold medalist, an HBF alumni, and current HBF senior outreach manager. Moe is also an advisor for Sesame Street where he helps shape the show’s discussions around addiction and mental health.
Moe and Bates discuss how a parent’s substance impacts the children in a household as well as the benefits of getting children involved with the free services that are available to children via Hazelden Betty Ford.
