80% of child abuse cases in some Florida counties involve parents' prescription drug abuse

80% of child abuse cases in some Florida counties involve parents' prescription drug abuse | Child abuse | Scoop.it

Via The Daytona Beach News-Journal:

 

State and local child welfare officials are dealing with a surge in abuse and neglect cases primarily blamed on prescription drug abuse. A program has been implemented the past two years and restructured locally to provide more intervention to families to keep children in their homes.

 

Lack of funding, though, limits the Intensive Family Intervention program to 40 families at a time -- 10 cases for each of the four case workers for Volusia, Flagler and Putnam counties. But Abramowitz is looking at reworking funding to expand the program and provide more substance abuse treatment. He is meeting later this month with treatment providers to find solutions.

 

About 80 percent of the cases of abuse or neglect in the region, which includes Volusia and Flagler and 18 other counties, involve prescription drug abuse, he said.

 

The number of children in foster care and other out-of-home placements is up 17 percent from two years ago with 1,043 children in placements in Volusia, Flagler and Putnam counties, reports show. The number of children removed from their homes is up 10 percent in the three-county area from just last fiscal year. But the state has also prevented hundreds of children from being removed locally through prevention and diversion programs, including one by a local provider, Neighbor To Family...

You think the number it's too high? Think agaon only 1/10 incidents of sexual abuse are reported. The actual numbers are much greater.

Jweninger1's curator insight, April 18, 2013 2:40 AM

Erin's Law being passed in all of the states around the U.S. is a great starting point! 

The "Speak Up, Be Safe" program in all grade schools would offer age appropriate content on this matter, and protect children through awareness and understanding who to trust and who they can tell to stop the abuse.  The program was created by a team of experts at Childhelp and ASU to build on their established curriculum already in place.

 

 

Jweninger1's comment, April 20, 2013 7:20 AM
I know the numbers are disturbing, and the stories are even worse. I would like to see more preventive measures adopted around the nation. I think that educating the public including the children on what is not acceptable for others to do to them, and who they should tell to get help, is crucial to protecting them from ongoing sexual abuse.

Rosemary MAMIE Adkins's curator insight, August 12, 2014 3:39 AM

Do you know someone being abused? REACH OUT and help.  If you ignore the cries of a child, you are as guilty as the ones abusing them. Did you know: 

In 13 seconds, another child will be abused in the U.S

PLEASE CARE.
