CHAPTER 3. PROCESS EVALUATION

1. PARTICIPANT DESCRIPTIONS

Participants for this project were 129 individual parents (for a total of 115 families) in Regions I, III, or IV, who qualified for the PTP and were willing to sign the consent form. Participants were referred by child welfare staff who suspected that substance abuse issues were a contrib- uting factor in their initial referrals to child protective services. Children of these parents were at home or recently placed out-of-home in relative or foster care.
