Recent data from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) shows that almost 15 million American adults currently battle some form of alcohol abuse. And one of the most common reasons for relationship counseling and divorce is the fraught combination of alcohol and marriage. If there are children involved, navigating their best interests in the midst of an alcohol-fueled divorce is complex at best. In terms of parenting plans and custody, how do attorneys and the court ensure the safety of the children while also allowing for a relationship with a parent accused of alcohol use disorder? The stakes are high indeed.


In this session, Jason Sweetman, business development manager for Soberlink, will offer insight into how to manage cases that involve one or both parents accused of abusing alcohol. He’ll share:


  • First-hand examples of the dynamics involved with parenting when Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is presented

  • The facts around the disease of AUD and how it plays into developing parenting plans around child custody decisions and safety

  • Best practices for testing using new technology that meets specific goals of parenting and child safety, including handling compliant and noncompliant behavior
