Friday on The Morning Zone:
7:07AM MST: Our 'Kids-At-Risk Series explores a sobering new study that says about 7.5 million American children under the age of 18 live with a parent who's struggled with alcohol abuse over the past year. That according to a new government report.That's equal to 10.5 percent of children across the country, say researchers at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), which issued the report."The enormity of this public health problem goes well beyond these tragic numbers as studies have shown that the children of parents with untreated alcohol disorders are at far greater risk for developing alcohol and other problems later in their lives," SAMHSA Administrator Pamela Hyde said in an agency news release. Child Advocate Attorney, john Frentheway and Licensed Professional Counselor Renee' Hanson explore this with host Dave Chaffin.
