Drug and Alcohol Abuse

Drug and alcohol abuse keeps parents from doing their number one job – providing a stable and loving environment for their child. Helping your baby feel safe and secure is critical to healthy growth and development. When alcohol or drugs prevents you from doing that, your child may have problems with his behavior or with learning.

If you or your partner has a problem with substance abuse, seek help. Talk to your doctor for advice or, in Arkansas, call the Arkansas Rehabilitation Hotline at 1-888-656-6401. In Tennessee, call the Tennessee Redline at 1-800-889-9789. Do it for your child. Do it for yourself.
