What You Shouldn’t Expect When Your Child is in Recovery from Addiction
Your child entering recovery from drug or alcohol use can be an uncertain time. After addiction treatment, the main question is usually, “What now?”
Are you worried that your risk-taking, “addictive personality” child might be more susceptible to substance use? Or are you wondering if you even should be worried?
Even though there isn’t a true medical diagnosis of an “addictive personality,” there are definitely certain risk factors that you as a parent can look for in your child to help understand if they’re more susceptible to problematic substance use.
