In the best-case scenario, the parent may be able to obtain supervised visitation if she seeks immediate substance abuse treatment and demonstrates progress on that front.Unsupervised visits or parenting time will not be permitted until the parent clearly demonstrates sustained sobriety.
A number of factors come into play when determining the impact of drug abuse on visitation, child custody and parental rights of a parent.
The law does require an attempt to reunite the parent and child.
