There are multiple opportunities to intervene with infants and their families or caregivers affected by substance use and substance use disorders (SUDs) to enhance their safety and well-being. Diverse agency partners must remain committed and engaged to develop policies and practices, coordinate programs that connect across intervention points, and implement Plans of Safe Care. Jurisdictions can use their collaborative team to steer their approach to Plans of Safe Care through all stages, from developing policy and practice guidance through local implementation. This module will explore the steps states can take to build, grow, and sustain collaborative teams critical to a comprehensive approach to address the health and treatment needs of infants and affected family or caregiver, and implement Plans of Safe Care.
