Addiction Being Passed Down Through Generations

Addiction Being Passed Down Through Generations

Addiction is a hard thing to predict, it’s often attributed to inherited and environmental factors. Though, when your parents are addicted to drugs, and they contribute to both inherited and environmental factors, the situation begins to look grim. Along with altering your environmental and inherited factors, your parents play a large part in crafting your behaviors and connotations associated with behaviors. In the absence of a responsible and decent parent to shelter a child from this maladaptive behavior it seems all the elements are fighting against them.

Though genetics plays a large factor in addiction, there is no specific addiction gene. There are anomalies that can sometimes be found that can help determine if a child will be more or less vulnerable to an addiction. These anomalies may make it harder for an individual to quit once they start using drugs, or it could make the individual immediately experience withdrawal symptoms once they use the drug. Because every individual is different, there is no accurate what to tell how the individual will react, but there are certain patterns that show the individual will react.

Exposure to drug addiction, and the lifestyle associated with drug addiction is also a huge determining factor in a child’s life. When a child grows up in an environment where their parents abuse drugs, the child is more likely to follow the same type of behavior. Because children watch their parents participate in this behavior, many times the negative connotation is not created in association with drugs. Also being exposed to this environment produces risk for the child because, they are around these drugs, and may have access to these drugs, causing children to potentially overdose in childhood, or experiment with their use in adolescents.

What can be don’t about this, and how can we stop children from following their parent’s footsteps? The best way to protect children is by not doing drugs and predisposing them to a possible genetic dependence to these chemicals. If you are the parent doing the drugs, seek treatment. If you are an outsider who has stumbled across a parents drug use, inform the authorities. Secondly, keep children away from the behavior and the environment. Allow children the opportunity to for the correct connotations about drug use, and the possible negative effects it can have on one’s life. As a parent, it is unfair to corrupt a child’s innocents, just to further ones one pleasure and destructive behaviors.
