This translational randomized trial, funded by El Centro in Year 6, will enroll 172 mothers in outpatient substance abuse or mental health treatment and their children (ages 2-17). Mothers will be randomly assigned to treatment as usual (TAU) or TAU+ Healthy Home, a family-based nurse-home health intervention. Mothers/children will be assessed at baseline, 4, 8, and 12 months post-baseline. The main study outcomes are improved health and mental health in the mothers; and improved health and emotional well-being of the children.
