Sixty individuals referred for a substance abuse evaluation by a child welfare worker were randomly assigned to either a standard evaluation or an evaluation enhanced by Motivational Interviewing techniques, each delivered in a single session.
Participants who received the enhanced evaluation were significantly more likely to attend at least one additional treatment session after the initial evaluation (59% versus 29%).
This finding suggests that comparatively inexpensive modifications of “standard” initial evaluations with substance-using parents may increase engagement of substance-abusing parents in treatment.
Moreover, this study adds to an overwhelmingly positive literature supporting Motivational Interviewing with alcohol-using populations and extends prior findings to non-research community settings.
A comparatively strong relationship between parental substance abuse and child abuse and neglect has been established.
Providing effective treatment for substance-abusing parents is thus a promising strategy for preventing further neglect.
Unfortunately, however, efforts to provide treatment to this population have been hampered by major gaps between the child welfare and the substance abuse treatment systems, including limited access to treatment.
In response to increasing incidence of child abuse associated with parental substance abuse in Connecticut,5 the Department of Children and Families (DCF) initiated Project SAFE (Substance Abuse Family Evaluation).
