Parents with substance-abuse problems often struggle to protect their kids from the genetic and environmental risks of addiction.
Such parents can best help their children by providing:
-Healthy models for sobriety, support, and coping
-Physical, financial, and emotional stability
-Trusted peer groups with parents who help look out for the child
“When a child believes he or she has the ability to resist peer pressure, he will be a lot more likely to do so,” writes Jessica Lahey, author of The Addiction Innoculation.
