The information in this booklet is meant to help children who are living with harmful parental drug or alcohol use. It is hoped that you will be helped to understand what is happening in your family and that some of your questions about drugs and alcohol will be answered. You may want to read this booklet alone or with a parent or adult you trust. We hope you will get clear information and find out how to talk to other people who can help you. Children are never to blame when a parent drinks too much or takes drugs. It is not your fault.
