Intoxicated Family Members

How To Help Children And Youth Exposed To Drug/Alcohol Intoxicated Family Members

Without help, this exposure can make growing up very difficult and confusing. It can make living, learning and relationships very challenging throughout adult life. It is very hard on children & youth’s trust, faith, safety, confidence, self-worth and ability to succeed. Too often, this can lead to the children & youth’s growing into adults with the same challenges themselves. This exposure can lead to the child or youth’s being abused in many ways by unconscious, confused family members and friends. Adults who have not been helped with challenges in childhood often abuse drugs and alcohol.
