As their parents get sucked into the Meth world, children are often the victims. The chaotic environment, potential for witnessing or experiencing violence, and possible contamination of the environment from a Meth lab or excessive amounts of use in the home or family vehicle can add up to a dangerous situation for the innocent children.

Because of these dangers, the children often end up being removed from the home and placed into foster care. Once in alternate care, these children often have unique needs and issues that foster parents will need to deal with. This video can serve as a training video to foster parents and potential foster parents.

Topics addressed in the video include prenatal Meth exposure and its effect on infants and older children, neglect in Meth homes, and the effect of such neglect on the child's development. Current foster parents discuss their first experience with a Meth-exposed infant and their concerns for the safety of these children, and their own children due to contamination of items brought into their home from the environment of the Meth-exposed children.
