Drug Use and Child Custody

Drug Use and Child Custody

If you are caught using illegal narcotics habitually, it could affect your ability to parent and care for your children. A recent court report announces that an 18-month-old baby girl was removed from her parent's custody after she was found standing naked in a van where the parents were using heroin. There were also traces of speed and other drugs in the vehicle and many heroin needles strewn at the baby's feet. The parents also lost custody of their son several years back because of their destructive habits.

Drug users are often inhibited by the "high" from their drugs, and therefore cannot act as aware and proactive parents. When the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services discover a crime of this nature, they can initiate an emergency removal of the children. If you have been charged with drug use, it can severely affect your right as a parent.
