Throughout the territory of Puerto Rico, drug and alcohol abuse is a major problem. Unfortunately, addiction does affect people from all walks of life. There are countless situations where adults with kids are addicted to drugs or alcohol. This is a common problem and does place the children in a difficult situation. When children grow up in a home with drug-addicted parents, they are more likely to abuse drugs. Some of the drug treatment centers in Puerto Rico have the ability to accommodate drug-addicted parents. This can be done in different ways. In most situations, the treatment program will attempt to reach out to the extended family for help. This will ensure the child has a safe place to go while their parents are in treatment. Some inpatient or even residential programs may have daycare services to help. There are also programs that might provide in-house care or a safe place for the child to stay.
