Care Proceedings and Addiction
A two part documentary on BBC2 last month highlighted the struggles addicted parents face in keeping their children in their care. 'Addicted Parents: Last Chance To Keep My Children', which aired on BBC2 in July, followed the struggles of addicted parents trying to get clean for the sake of their children. The documentary goes inside a specialist Family Services rehabilitation facility which allows children to remain with their parents whilst they attempt to overcome their substance misuse issues. It is the only centre of its kind in the UK and allows parents six months to get clean and prove that they can raise their children.

The documentary followed four mothers who have battled with substance addiction for years and a young couple who were both addicted to heroin and were trying to address their issues so that their two year old child could remain in their care. The programme highlights the many difficulties faced by parents who have struggled with substance misuse, which inevitably leads to the Local Authority becoming involved with the family.

If you are a parent affected by these issues and have Local Authority involvement with your family, our specialist family team can provide you with advice and assistance. Please contact one of our offices to speak to a member of the team.
