The Child Intervention for Living Drug-Free (CHILD) Curriculum

Child Intervention for Living Drug-Free (CHILD) Curriculum provides treatment providers with the tools they need to identify, assess, and treat children with substance use disorders (SUDs) using age-appropriate interventions and methodologies.

It is a six-course training programme that responds to the needs of children and their caregivers impacted by substance use and life circumstances of various social, cultural, economic, and political situations.

The curriculum was developed by an internationally-recognised panel of experts from a broad range of specialisations—including treatment, prevention, public policy, pediatric medicine, psychology and pharmacology—with first-hand experience in working directly with substance-using children and their caregivers from diverse social backgrounds.
