BDN Reports on Coalition led by UMaine School of Social Work

The Bangor Daily News reported on the new Penquis Regional Linking Program, a partnership of nearly three dozen agencies and providers in eastern Maine that seek to help children of drug addicts by using trauma-informed treatment designed to break down barriers. The group is led by the University of Maine School of Social Work and the Bangor-based agency Families And Children Together. The article also cited a report by Jennifer Middleton, UMaine assistant professor of social work and lead researcher on the project. Middleton’s data says there has been a huge increase in the number of babies born in Maine exposed to drugs, from 165 in 2005 to 667 in 2011.
