How Substance Abuse can Impact Children

Protecting Your Children From Substance Abuse

Substance abuse is an unfortunate reality for far too many people. Millions of Americans abuse substances such as alcohol, prescription drugs and narcotics. While society may pay the price for this epidemic, children should be exempt from that burden.

What can you do to protect your children if their other parent is abusing substances? What effect can your own substance abuse have on your custody case? At Worsham Law Firm, P.A., we have experience resolving such difficult issues and focus on keeping the best interests of children at the forefront.

Protecting Your Children

If your child’s other parent is abusing drugs or alcohol, we can help you pursue a custody arrangement that protects your children. Depending on the severity of the situation, this may include seeking sole physical and legal custody. The bottom line will be making sure your children are raised in a safe, nurturing environment, free from the damage of substance abuse.

Protecting Your Parental Rights

If you are struggling with substance abuse, you are not alone. You are not a bad person, but you do need help. The first step is getting help in the form of counseling and treatment. To improve your custody situation, you need to make sure your own life is in order. In the meantime, we can fight to make sure you have supervised visitation with your children.
