Guide to Custody Modification for Parents in Recovery from Substance Use Disorder
This article is about child custody for people in recovery, so if your child has a Child Protective Services (CPS) case for abuse and neglect or someone else has guardianship of your child, this article may not help you. If you have general questions about child abuse and neglect, visit our child abuse and neglect law article. If you are a relative that wants to help a child with a CPS abuse and neglect case, take a look at our abuse and neglect article for relatives. If someone who is not a birth parent has custody of the child and you have questions about guardianship, please visit our article on infant guardianship.
