As mentioned earlier on this blog, when a person has a “drug addiction”, they automatically have a mental health issue. We should also understand that when parents bring others into their lives, they automatically bring these individuals into their children’s lives. Thus, when parents are addicted to illegal drugs, they have unwittingly engaged in child abuse. Drug dealers aren’t pillars of society, and could bring harm to the children of their clients.
Destructive behaviors occur for many reasons: Family violence, congenital brain malfunctions, deep-brain injuries, biology, negative conformity either from family or peers, drug usage, and other explanations which the psychological community discusses on a regular basis. However, there are instances when these causations don’t apply. As a result, every individual who exhibits these behaviors doesn’t necessarily have a personality disorder. Rather, it’s a preference over socially-acceptable behaviors.
