Substance Abuse and Human Trafficking

This series is designed to equip adults with provide critical guidance on the mental health and well-being needs of children impacted by these issues.

The Challenge

1 in 8 children under the age of 18 have lived in households with at least one parent who has substance use disorder (SUD). Adults battling substance abuse, as well as their children, are frequently the victims of human trafficking.

The COVID-19 pandemic has only introduced new challenges for people with SUD, which has in turn directly exacerbated the domestic child human trafficking crisis.
