Primary objective

To assess the effectiveness of psychosocial interventions at reducing the substance misuse (alcohol and/or illicit drugs excluding tobacco) of parents with children of dependent age (from birth to 21years). Intervention impact will be examined separately for different substances.

Secondary objectives

To examine whether interventions can increase drug and/or alcohol treatment engagement, retention and completion; affect the welfare of the child; whether intervention effects differ by intervention type and duration or according to who receives them.
