Kids in Crisis: The Youngest Victims

Share this on:

Nearly one in three kids in America grows up in a home impacted by addiction. For children who grow up with addiction in their family, the very place where they should feel safe and protected—home—becomes an unpredictable environment filled with erratic behavior, conflict and broken promises. Growing up in these conditions can have a profound psychological impact on kids. We will examine how children perceive and respond to addiction in the family and explore ways that loved ones can work together to heal from the hurt of these behaviors. Join Hazelden Betty Ford in collaboration with Lee Health, Kids' Minds Matter and other community resources for this important presentation.
