Women’s Services Network

As a component of National Association of State Alcohol/Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) and the National Treatment Network (NTN), The Women’s Services Network functions as a specialty network under the auspices of the NTN, and in collaboration with the National Prevention Network (NPN) having women’s treatment and prevention issues as the focus while remaining dedicated to the NTN’s overall goal of effective, socially responsive treatment delivery for all populations.

NASADAD is excited to announce the release of a new research report, Therapeutic Services for Children Whose Parents Receive Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment (11/2011).

The goal of this study was to identify policies and practices that States have implemented to offer high-quality services for children whose parents enter treatment for substance use disorders (SUDs).  This study also describes the ways that Single State Agencies (SSAs) for Alcohol and Drugs and SUD treatment providers are able to collaborate with other agencies to provide cost-effective services to children whose parents enter SUD treatment.

NASADAD and the WSN are pleased to announce the release of Guidance to States: Treatment Standards for Women With Substance Use Disorders (09/2008).

This document is based on the knowledge and experience of the WSN members, with the objective of helping States to improve alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment services to women through the establishment of standards that build on the capabilities and strengths of State systems and provider networks.
