More resources for those working with Children Whose parents may have an addiction:

Other resources:

● Sesame Street has created a series of videos that include 6-year-old Karli, talking to her friends about her mom's struggle with drug addiction.

● The Eluna Network runs Camp Mariposas in more than a dozen states. They offer a range of online resources for adults who want to help children whose families struggle with addiction. Customized help is also available.

● The Hazelden Betty Ford Children's Program provides support, education, and care to kids who grow up in a family with alcohol or drug addiction.

● National Association for Children of Addiction or NACoA offers a range of resources about the impact of alcohol and drug abuse on children and families. They also offer resources to help build resilience in children.

● Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration or SAMHSA is a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. National Helpline [1-800-662-HELP (4357)] is a free, confidential, 24/7, 365-day-a-year treatment referral and information service (in English and Spanish) for individuals and families facing mental and/or substance use disorders. Here is their Opioid Treatment Program Directory.
