Exposure to parental drug or alcohol misuse can have devastating effects on the psychosocial development of children into adults. In adult life it may lead to:
- Difficulty trusting others
- Unmet emotional needs
- Relationship difficulties
- An increased likelihood of substance misuse
InnerChild is a program for people who grew up in a family affected by drug or alcohol misuse which is now impacting negatively on their adult behaviour.
All Holyoake programs are based on a harm minimisation model.
