The National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children defines drug endangered children (DEC) as children who are at risk of suffering physical or emotional harm as a result of illegal drug use, possession, manufacturing, cultivation, or distribution. They may also be children whose caretaker’s substance misuse interferes with the caretaker’s ability to parent and provide a safe and nurturing environment. In sum, children + drugs equal RISK. This risk has a significant potential impact on neurodevelopment and psychosocial function. This impact can be understood within the context of the long-term effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). This presentation will discuss both individual and environmental risk related to the drug endangered environment. Importantly it will elucidate how the ecology of the child to the drug endangered environment puts them at the highest risk for exploitation.
