Child, Advocacy, Resilience, Education and Support Team.
CARES is the Child, Advocacy, Resilience, Education and Support Team. 8.7 million children nationwide have a parent struggling with SUD, and some of those children may have their own trauma that is overlooked. CARES is Madison County’s community response team for children impacted by substance use. CARES is here to support the children and families who are impacted by a parents’ Substance Use Disorder – including the parent who is struggling. We are a non-judgmental group of professionals from several different agencies with the common purpose of helping your family to be safe and healthy.
