Results: Parents with illicit drug dependence problems showed a
greater number of clinical aspects to their children’s psychological
development than parents with alcohol addiction, as the
proportion of this group was (CBCL: withdrawn (59%); somatic
complaints (24.5%); social problems (29%); thought problems
(12%); delinquent behavior (24,5%); externalizing (55%); and
total problems (55%)). However, both substances are equally
harmful and can trigger mental health risks in children, especially
younger children. Regarding the risk of mental health problems,
the findings indicate that 39% (n=115) of the children demonstrated
externalizing problems and 33% (n=97) demonstrated internalizing problems
