Children of Prenatal Substance Abuse presents practical and important information on working with children who were exposed to drugs prenatally. The author begins by defining what is meant by substance abuse and how it affects the entire family, not just the child, and then provides detailed information on the effects of cocaine and alcohol on developing children and adolescents. Intervention strategies are presented which are tailored to the specific needs of cocaine-exposed and/or alcohol-exposed children. Emphasis is placed on early intervention with the family as the most effective treatment model. Information on prevention and sources for educational material are also included.
