    Abstract

    In 2003, the Inquiry of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, published a report for the Government, drawing on a range of research, practitioner and service user knowledge (including an eye opening accounts of children who live with parental substance abuse).
    The key messages derived from the report highlighted the pressing need for changes, both in policy and practice. More specifically 'Hidden Harm' (Home Office, 2003) recognised children's vulnerability and the lack of support. The report called for evaluation of interventions supporting children affected by parental substance misuse.
    This paper investigates effective interventions in social work practice when illicit drugs and alcohol are affecting parenting. Specific elements are considered: children and adult interventions and professional's perspective and barriers to effective interventions.
