Child Welfare, v80 n2 p257-73 Mar-Apr 2001
Discusses the role of spirituality, a critical but often ignored component of substance abuse recovery for parents. Examines how the addict's physical and emotional deterioration can lead to a distortion of the spiritual self and contributes to the inability of the parent to act responsibly or in a nurturing manner. Highlights how the regulation of spirituality by parents can influence their ability to care responsibility for their children. (Author/JPB)
