Chemical dependency in the children of drug addicts has not been very widely studied. Scientists do not know if a genetic link exists. However, teens whose parents are drug addicts are at a higher risk for chemical dependency. Drugs may be an accepted part of their upbringing. They may simply be presented as a part of life. To these teens, drugs are familiar. They have watched their family members use and abuse drugs. When things get tough, they may try it themselves.
