Subject:RE: Seeking information on state policies defining drug use as child maltreatment

A reminder that many states may be revising their laws (or already have) related to the change to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) made last year (effective July 22, 2016) within the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA). States had to include some discussion of how they have/are intending to respond to the CAPTA changes in CARA when they submitted their Annual Progress and Services Report (APSR) to ACF/HHS. The Institute for Medicaid Innovation recently held a forum that has some important resources - http://www.medicaidinnovation.org/current-initiatives/uniting-stakeholders There is obviously much discussion of the impact of the opioid crisis on child welfare – additional metrics also examine ingestions/overdoses involving children, parental arrest/incarceration (e.g., degree to which there is a co-occurrence of endangering the welfare of children or some similar offense alongside a drug related – either possession or sale/manufacture charge), grandparents raising grandchildren, etc. Be well, Cathy Cathleen Palm, Founder The Center for Children’s Justice Nurture, protect, listen to and speak up #4PAKids www.c4cj.org 610-488-5059 (o) or 717-215-1440 (c) On Twitter @ProtectPAKids - Like us on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/centerForChildrensJustice From: bounce-121679899-13606222@list.cornell.edu [mailto:bounce-121679899-13606222@list.cornell.edu] On Behalf Of Gray, Tiffiney Sent: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 10:06 AM To: Child Maltreatment Researchers Cc: ksslack@wisc.edu; Johnson, Sheri; Willis, Earnestine Subject: RE: Seeking information on state policies defining drug use as child maltreatment Good morning, This might be a resource: https://www.childwelfare.gov/topics/systemwide/laws-policies/statutes/drugexposed/ https://www.childwelfare.gov/pubPDFs/drugexposed.pdf#page=4&view=Full-text excerpts of State laws Tiffiney Gray, M.S., M.A. Department of Pediatrics Center for the Advancement of Underserved Children (CAUC) Clinical Research Coordinator II Tel: 414.955.4351 Fax: 414.955.6385 tgray@mcw.edu From: bounce-121679698-78633839@list.cornell.edu [mailto:bounce-121679698-78633839@list.cornell.edu] On Behalf Of Kristen Slack Sent: Wednesday, July 26, 2017 6:37 AM To: child-maltreatment-research-l@list.cornell.edu Subject: Seeking information on state policies defining drug use as child maltreatment Dear Colleagues: Do you know of any research on the effects of state statutes defining in utero alcohol or drug exposure, or alcohol or drug use during pregnancy, as a form of child maltreatment?
