About the Strategy Group
Children and families continue to be missed in most efforts to address the addiction epidemic; yet they are the first hurt and the last helped when a family member develops a substance use disorder. Our Strategy Group wishes to address this enormous gap and welcomes your participation.

Addiction is a “grown-up issue,” but PTACC partner, National Association for Children of Addiction (NACoA) knows that it impacts children in ways that are not always visible. In collaboration with NACoA, and other experts in addiction and early childhood development, the Sesame Street neighborhood is now able to share simple but powerful themes surrounding addiction through conversations with Elmo and other friends.
“NACoA is grateful that children living with parental addiction worldwide will benefit for a longtime to come from this extraordinary project….” - NACoA CEO/President Sis Wenger
More information on this strategy area will be coming soon to PTACC's website, which you can access here.
