When children are affected by drug use and abuse, it makes the problem of addiction that much more tragic. In 2011, that’s exactly what happened in Gastonia, North Carolina when a mobile crystal meth lab was busted and two children were found on the premises. Particularly deadly, the manufacturing of crystal meth can cause explosions that are deadly to everyone in the house in addition to the fact that ingestion of the substance is poisonous, especially to small children.

Putting Your Children First
You may believe that you are shielding your children from your drug or alcohol abuse but even at a young age, they can sense that something is going on. They notice that you:
- Are hiding something when you shoot up or don’t share your drink
- Often don’t feel well
- Are moody
- Often act differently after you drink or do whatever you do when you are away from them
Depending upon their experiences with you and your substance abuse, they can end up developing:
- Trust issues
- Abandonment issues
- Problems at school
- A substance abuse issue of their own
