It is the goal of the 2011 DEC Conference planners to provide community partners with current, timely, relevant and valuable Drug Endangered Children information with an emphasis on the latest research and best practice strategies .
DEC is all about collaboration. Participants will explore some of the strategies needed to create a collaborative framework for addressing the complex needs of Drug Endangered Children, their Families and how to protect children from the harmful effects of their caregivers’ substance abuse.
We anticipate a provincewide representation of service providers and professionals, including child welfare providers, substance abuse treatment providers, law enforcement, prosecutors, probation officers, prevention specialists, maternal and child health agencies, physicians, nurses, researchers and evaluators, educators, First Nations communities, community organizations serving youth, and children and adult mental health providers.
