Ryan says most states aim to keep families together despite a parent's history of drug use
"Parents with drug problems are often allowed to keep their kids. After AJ Freund, will that change?" - Chicago Tribune. 4/26/2019.
Joseph Ryan, professor of social work and PSC faculty associate, said most states aim to keep families together despite a parent’s history of drug use: “To some extent, that makes sense. It’s not like we have a great alternative in foster care. The general idea is to see if you can work with a family in the home and reduce the risk of harm to the child.”
