Research looking at the Families First project, a multi-agency support service which provides advice, social work intervention and parenting support for adults and families with substance use issues. The project aims at providing intensive short-term support so that children of problem drug users on the verge of being removed from the family are safely able to stay with their parents (or other relatives). The research shows short term successes (at 12-month follow up), although the longer term effect is not known and would require further study.
