-In 2012, drug or alcohol abuse accounted for 31% of the cases of children being removed from their homes and placed into foster care.
-There are 8.3 million children currently living in a home with a parent who suffers from an addiction.
These are just two statistics shared in the following infographic produced by JourneyPure Emerald Coast drug rehabilitation programs. To view the infographic refer HERE.
Although the statistics presented in the infographic and the cycle of addiction in general seem very disheartening, to me the most hopeful part of this infographic is entitled, "What you can do if you suspect a child is being neglected or abused by their addicted parent?"
