According to official records, two out of every three children are placed in foster care because of parental substance abuse. The number is only increasing. It shows that the “war on drugs” is definitely not won or over. Children are paying a high cost for addiction because a lot of these children do not find placement in good and stable homes and have a lower rate of being returned to their parents.
