The DEC Approach

Our Solution…

To address the DEC challenges and give children’s needs priority, National DEC has developed The DEC Approach: “a multidisciplinary strategy to change the trajectory of a drug endangered child’s life through recognition of a common vision, ongoing collaboration between disciplines, and ongoing change in practices and policies, all of which increases the likelihood of better outcomes for drug endangered children.” This approach trains practitioners to form community-based partnerships across multiple disciplines and effectively share their expertise and mutual interests, resources and responsibilities, help children and families in their communities. By working together these multidisciplinary state, local, tribal and regional DEC alliances provide help, hope and support to children and families to seek help in order to break the cycle of substance misuse. Our goal is healthy children, families and communities. Contact our staff at [email protected] to learn more about how to partner with National DEC or get involved in a DEC alliance in your community.
