Effects of Drug and Alcohol Abuse on the Family

Drug and alcohol abuse can have a devastating effect on a family. If a parent is addicted to drugs or alcohol, special safeguards need to be put in place to make sure the children are protected during periods of access with that parent. Even if there are no children; a party’s addiction will affect their ability to earn a living and potentially affect a support award or property division.
