I’m an Addict, If I Have Children Will They Become Addicts Too?

You may have struggled with drugs or alcohol for many years and now you’re concerned about how your behavior will affect your children in the future. You may know other addicts whose children took their same path to addiction, and you fear that your children will do the same. Your concerns are important, and that’s why we have resources available to assist you and your family throughout your rehab program. According to the National Association for Children of Alcoholics, the chances of children who have drug addicted parents are very high. This is due to environmental and genetic factors. The more exposure a child has to drugs or alcohol, the more likely he or she will be enticed to abuse drugs especially when their parents are not strong enough to intervene.
