When a family member struggles with addiction, the whole family struggles and professionals can help. National DEC recently partnered with Sesame Street and other partners to create a video about how law enforcement can help drug endangered children and families. This video describes ways law enforcement can work together to help young children in situations of parental addiction and substance abuse and how DEC efforts can help professionals and communities.
