Parental Addiction

Parental Addiction is Child Abandonment
A stoned or drunk parent is not emotionally available to their child.  Much of the parents energy is focused on obtaining their next fix.  They replay the routine needed to get more drugs.  Money is always an issue as their craving increases.
