Why Quality Legal Representation Matters for Families Affected by Substance Use Disorders

May 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

This webinar will explore the attributes of quality legal representation for parents involved in child welfare proceedings and family drug court (FDC). Parent attorneys play a critical role to ensure that reasonable efforts are made on behalf of families affected by substance use disorders to have access to quality services to prevent removal and timely reunification of permanency. Attendees will learn how FDC teams and their parent attorneys work together towards a shared vision of accountability for families involved in the FDC and child welfare system.
