Drug Endangered Children (DEC)
The Michigan DEC Alliance seeks to establish a collaborative system of professionals that work to ensure all families lead lives free from abuse, neglect, and exposure to opioids and other harmful substances.
The Michigan DEC Alliance protects and serves drug endangered children and their families by promoting multidisciplinary collaboration and information sharing among DEC professionals, from early identification through intervention, response, and support.
MSP has partnered with the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children to strengthen the efforts of this program. National DEC provides training, assistance, and resources to state and local DEC alliances. For more information on National DEC, visit their website.
FUNDING: In October 2019, MSP received a $1 million, three-year competitive grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) for the fiscal year (FY) 2019 Opioid Affected Youth Initiative (OAYI), Award # 2019-YB-FX-K003. This funding will provide support for the DEC program and the MSP's overarching goal of helping children exposed to opioids and other drugs. For more information on this grant award, visit the OJJDP FY 19 OAYI webpage.
