Children whose family members abuse drugs often are physically or emotionally abused and often lack proper immunizations, medical and dental care, and necessities such as water, food, and shelter. The risk to children gets even bigger when their parents or guardians manufacture illicit drugs such as methamphetamine since methamphetamine abusers often produce the drug in their own homes and apartments. Hazardous chemicals such as hydriodic acid, iodine, and anhydrous ammonia make children often inhale dangerous chemical fumes and gases or ingest toxic chemicals or illicit drugs. These children commonly suffer from both short- and long-term health consequences, and from neglect that leads to psychological and developmental problems. Not only children, but obviously teens experience problems too.

( this includes emotional development, academic retention and social interaction) Sensory information is processed by the hippocampus which is a part of the limbic system in the brain.

Expectant mothers who use drugs, because of the drugs themselves and also poor self-care in general, have got a much higher rate of giving birth to low weight babies than the average. Many drugs for instance crack and heroin flow past the placental barrier, resulting in addicted babies who go through withdrawal soon after birth and fetal alcohol syndrome which can affect children of mothers who take alcohol during pregnancy.
It is also a psychological problem for there is a link between how teenagers brain works and how that results in their act in daily basis.
