Substance misuse is a complex issue. It affects not only individuals but also their families, friends and communities.

Parental or carer drug or alcohol use can reduce the capacity for effective parenting. In particular the children of parents or carers who are dependent on drugs or alcohol are more likely to develop behaviour problems, experience low educational attainment, and be vulnerable to developing substance misuse problems themselves. Some children’s health or development may be impaired to the extent that they are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm.
