Parents with active substance use disorder face many challenges to providing a safe and stable environment for their children. Parental substance use can harm children at every stage of development, from preconception to adolescence, which may lead to exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). ACEs are a pervasive problem in Ohio and across the country with severe, long-term health and economic impacts.

HPIO developed the Ohio Addiction Policy Scorecard: Children, Youth and Families, the fourth in a series of scorecards, to provide policymakers and other stakeholders with the information needed to take stock of Ohio’s policy response to the addiction crisis. In addition, HPIO also developed Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): Economic Impact of ACEs in Ohio to analyze the economic costs incurred from ACEs across the public and private sectors, including substantial costs to the healthcare system. This webinar will explore key findings from both reports.

Guest speaker:

Kristi Burre, Director of Children’s Initiatives, Office of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine
