CPO Logo

The Center on Parenting and Opioids (CPO) is working to raise awareness and improve the lives of parents and children impacted by opioid use. Our goal is to identify the brain pathways and behaviors that are related to both opioid use and parenting. By identifying those pathways, the CPO can build personalized programs for families affected by opioids, helping them feel more successful and confident as parents.
