PREVENTING AND ADDRESSING ALCOHOL AND DRUG PROBLEMS: A HANDBOOK FOR CLERGY
This recently updated handbook -- created by NACoA’s Clergy Education and Training Project® for SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention -- provides some basic information on alcoholism and addiction, the impact of parental addiction on children, facts about adolescent alcohol and drug use, and prevention strategies. It also has an appendix with handouts for use with children of alcohol and drug dependent parents. You can download the handbook. NACoA’s on-line course, Preventing Alcohol and Drug Problems: A Course for Clergy, is based on this handbook.
