    Speak Up! - View Question #24195


    printer friendly version

    Question:

    IF your parent is doing drugs such as cocain and crack and snorting pills like adderal. Can you be taken out of the home? and if cps has been notified and school counselors why isn't anyone doing anything?



    Answer:

    There is a process for investigating neglect or abuse of a child, and for removing a child from an unfit home if the situation has grown serious enough.  And certainly a parent who exposes his/her child to constant drug use has endangered that child.  Unfortunately, it sounds like you have already consulted with CPS and a guidance counselor at your school.  Normally, an agency like CPS (or the local police) will investigate a situation like this, and if enough evidence exists, take formal action.  Here is the number for Child Protective Services 888-SOS-CHILD or 888-767-2445.

    If your parents are doing drugs then you need to get out. And if you school isn't listening to you then you need to keep telling them and then they will believe you sooner or later and then they will do something so i hope that you get out of there and get into a safe place...

    Hey well if they're doing drugs you need to get out of that house as soon as you can. You need to keep trying to talk to the people at your school and keep telling them that they need to get you out of that house cause i went through that same thing and i finally got out of it but you have to keep telling them and it takes a little bit of time but they will get you out of that house.I hope that helped you GOOD LUCK and i hope that you get out safe.
