Infographic: Family Program

This infographic delves into the damage that substance abuse can inflict upon entire families by presenting evidence compiled by various sources, including the Child Welfare League of America and the Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services. Some of the data presented includes the statistic that over 50,000 babies per year are negatively affected by maternal alcohol abuse in the US. In addition, this infographic points out that 80% of all child abuse and neglect cases involve substance abuse. It concludes by listing the various roles that are often assumed by different family members whose lives are touched by family substance abuse. All of these facts make a strong argument for the importance of family-based programs to tackle the problem of substance abuse in America.
