One out of four children have a parent with an addiction. Children who grow up in addicted families have a biological vulnerability to the disease and often end up suffering from physical and emotional abuse. It’s important for children to find safe buffer zones to build up their resilience and reduce the likelihood that they will as adults recreate and reenact the pain they felt as children.
