This translational randomized trial, funded by El Centro in Year 6, will enroll 172 mothers in outpatient substance abuse treatment at Banyan Health Systems and their children (ages 2-17). Mothers will be randomly assigned to substance abuse treatment as usual (TAU) or TAU+ SET. SET is a family-based intervention delivered in the home which is empirically supported for mothers in recovery. SET has been revised so that it can be delivered by nurses as a means of achieving better integration between their substance abuse treatment and primary care. Mothers/children will be assessed at baseline, 3, 6, and 9 months post-baseline. The main study outcomes are relapse prevention and improved health in the mothers; and improved health of children.
