The Impact of an Addicted Parent #infographic #drugaddiction

The struggle of living with a parent who suffers from addiction is all too real. Did you know that 8.3 million children live in a home with a parent who suffers from addiction? That is 12% of all children in the US.

The impact living with an addicted parent has on a child is debated. But statistics show that children raised in a household where one or more parents are addicted to drugs or alcohol face higher levels of conflict, have markedly higher rates of mental and physical health issues, and ultimately are more likely to end up suffering from their own addiction in adulthood.

This infographic delves further into this topic sharing some of the sad truths about children living with addicted parents, signs to look for in children who may be struggling, and how you can help.
