COMMUNITY AWARENESS SPOTLIGHT:

ACES - ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES

are a significant risk factor for substance use disorders and can impact prevention efforts.

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are stressful or traumatic events, including abuse and neglect.

They may also include household dysfunction such as witnessing domestic violence or growing up with family members who have substance use disorders.

ACEs are strongly related to the development and prevalence of a wide range of health problems throughout a person’s lifespan, including those associated with substance misuse.

Preventing ACEs and engaging in early identification of people who have experienced them could have a significant impact on a range of critical health problems.  Take a look at this short video for additional insight...
