SCREENING AND ASSESSMENT FOR FAMILY ENGAGEMENT, RETENTION, AND RECOVERY (SAFERR)

This guidebook presents the SAFERR (Screening and Assessment for Family Engagement, Retention, and Recovery) model for helping staff of public and private agencies respond to families affected by substance use disorders. The SAFERR model and this guidebook were developed by the National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW), a training and technical assistance resource center established jointly by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Office on Child Abuse and Neglect of the Administration for Children and Families. Both agencies are part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
