What are the strategies to address illicit drug use among parents, whose children are in the care of child protective services?

Hardy, R., Fani, N., Jovanovic, T., & Michopoulos, V. (2018). Food addiction and substance addiction in women: Common clinical characteristics. Appetite, 120, 367-373. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.appet.2017.09.026

Addiction to food and other substances in women is explained in the study. The study included 229 female PTSD patients who were classified into groups based on whether they also struggled with an eating disorder, substance use disorder, or neither. All of the data used in the study was gathered using questionnaires and surveys created by the authors. This data included information on trauma, diet, emotional eating, drug use, and demographics. Female participants with histories of substance abuse and food addiction shared similar symptoms and difficulties with emotional regulation, the study revealed (Hardy et al., 2018). According to the findings, chemical dependency and food dependency share the same brain region. This research demonstrated how my early life food addiction paved the way for my current struggles with substance misuse. Based on this article, I conclude that my predilection for binge eating was a prelude to other addictive tendencies. The study highlights that the contribution to the addiction to illicit drug use is similar to that of food. This insight is of value in offering significant intervention for better prevention to protect children.

Gordon, D. (2018). The Family Framework in a Drug Treatment Court.  Socius: Sociological Research for a Dynamic World,  4, 237802311876146. https://doi.org/10.1177/2378023118761462

The study highlights family challenges by addressing drug abuse, which is known to break families and reduce attention to parenting. More and more states are attempting to modify their responses to drug offenses by constructing drug courts. Programs using this approach combine punitive measures with therapeutic ones in an attempt to reform affected individuals. The author uses a specific example from a drug court to broadly describe the institutional procedures that define this type of intervention. The author explains how the “family framework,” the belief that clients are like children and “grow up” in the sense of the initiative, is fundamental to the values, social standards, and processes of drug court professionals based on ethnographic observation of the court’s evaluation on interviews with program experts, and assessment of files and media accounts (Gordon, 2018). The concepts of dependency and deservingness were embedded in the family structure, and these were based on race and class. In this way, the court could cater to a largely white and middle-class clientele, thanks to the influence of these conceptual frameworks in shaping program selection and completion. According to the author, this case exemplifies how states can strictly control and limit access to their initiatives to a select group of citizens.

Youth Growing Up in Families Experiencing Parental Substance Use Disorders and Homelessness: A High-Risk Population.  Journal Of Child And Adolescent Psychopharmacology,  29(10), 773-782. https://doi.org/10.1089/cap.2019.0011

This research aimed to learn more about the challenges faced by families dealing with parental substance use disorders (SUDs) and homelessness, as well as their perspectives on the supports available to them. The study’s participants reported high levels of trauma, guilt, and apprehension about disclosing substance use disorders (Ijadi-Maghsoodi et al., 2019). Difficulties were also identified in the study’s focus areas of communication, discussions of substance use, and family and youth goal setting, all of which are crucial to preventing SUDs. It was also revealed distinct pressures associated with navigating housing and services within the community. Our findings highlight the necessity for a family-based SUD-preventive intervention for youth growing up in homes with parental SUDs and suffering homelessness to address the heightened SUD risk. Moreover, our research can help improve clinical and housing services for this vital group.

Substance misuse among parents has far-reaching and devastating effects on children. Housing insecurity is just one of the many dangers these young people face. Substance abuse among parents is a major risk factor for a child not living with one of their biological parents. While studies demonstrate that these young people are more likely to encounter housing insecurity, very little is known about their actual lived experiences in housing (Lewis et al., 2021). Youth who have experienced parental substance abuse has been exposed to the toxic stress and trauma of a lack of stable housing. When young people’s lives are complicated by multiple traumatic events, they must have access to safe, stable, and dependable housing options. To better understand the effects of adverse childhood experiences, researchers should investigate how to incorporate housing variables into ACEs measures. An increase in housing assistance for families with children would be supported by the findings of such a study, which might also provide light on the stress experienced by marginalized groups.

The study is about conducting a training program for the parents as a strategy to prevent child abuse and neglect that is known to emerge due to various reasons, including illicit drug abuse. Training intervention has been shown to be working significantly in preparing parents to handle things with moderation for the sake of their children to avoid ruining their future (Sahillioglu & Akman, 2021). The study also shows that the program is working significantly and has a permanent impact on the targeted parents where they would prioritize on the interest of their children. It was evident in the study that positive and lasting effects on the awareness and understanding of parenting would help society move forward.
