Childhood plays a pivotal role in affecting the course of a person’s life. With parenting, you want your children to live a fulfilling, happy, healthy, and enriching life. However, if you or your spouse are dealing with an addiction such as substance, this could affect the child’s life in negative ways that may follow them into adulthood. The addiction may increase the odds of the child becoming addicted to something themselves while the unseen emotional toll can result in lasting damage.

A parent that can overcome their battle with substance abuse may discover that the child will likely have a higher level of self-esteem and there are fewer chances of them developing problems with their behavior or, as mentioned, having emotional issues. Considering children often follow their parent’s example, this also means there are fewer chances of the child turning into an addict themselves.

Even if you’ve been battling substance abuse for several years, there is always a chance to try and overcome your circumstances.
