HARTFORD — Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is unveiling a new strategy to help better serve Connecticut families affected by substance abuse.
The program calls for a tested and intensive in-home program for families involved with the state's Department of Children and Families. The initiative has been dubbed the Connecticut Family Stability Pay for Success project.
Malloy is scheduled to announce the initiative Tuesday at Hartford City Hall with White House National Drug Control Policy Director Michael Botticelli and other state and federal officials. The Yale Child Study Center and other organizations will be involved.
It's initially being funded with private social impact bonds that the state will eventually repay if specific results are met.
Malloy and Botticelli are hosting a forum this week on preventing prescription drug and heroin abuse.
