Specially designed courses and materials for Home Visitors serving families impacted by Substance Use Disorder.

Tools for supporting families impacted by Substance Use Disorder.

Support for Families in Substance Use Recovery

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) can have a profound influence on the lives of families, particularly children. Over the years Great Kids® has received multiple requests from programs indicating they needed more information to support home visitors who were serving these families. For this reason, we contracted with experts in the field to help us develop materials that would do just that.

The result is two upcoming new products designed specifically with the Home Visitor who is serving families impacted by SUD in mind.

  1. RISE – Recovery-Impact-Support-Empower
  2. Hope at Home (In Development)

Substance Use Recovery Products


Recovery-Impact-Support-Empower. This interactive online course will guide the Home Visitor’s journey into enhanced understanding of Substance Use Disorder (SUD). While gaining foundational understanding, participants will learn to use that information to enhance, adapt, and integrate their home visiting skills to support families affected by Substance Use Disorder.

Hope at Home (In Development)

This curriculum manual is a companion product to be used in conjunction with the Growing Great Kids® curriculum series. It contains conversation guides written to be specifically appropriate for families in recovery from Substance Use Disorder and in such cases would be used in place of the Growing Great Families® manual.

“The Growing Great Kids curriculum means that I have the opportunity of sharing such valuable information and lots of information with families that I serve. Information that has been researched and is evidence based, but not only that, information that is very supporting and encouraging in understanding parenting. Understanding the importance of parent-child interaction, bonding and attachment, understanding in what your child developmental milestones are and having them reach those milestones.”

"We came across Great Kids, Growing Great Kids and it didn’t take us very long at all to read and understand that Great Kids had a curriculum that aligns perfectly with everything that we need here for our early home-based programs."
