Substance use problems (SUDs) are portrayed by discontinuous usage of alcohol or drugs (or both) that results in issues, for instance, being not ready to control use of the substance; fail to meet responsibilities at work, home, or school; having constant fragility; and contributing an extended proportion of energy getting, using, or recovering from the effects of using the substance. Parent substance use and parent knowledge of a SUD can effectively influence kids. Children with a parent who has a SUD are more plausible than youths who don't have a parent with a SUD to have lower monetary status and extended difficulties in educational and social settings and family working. Children having a parent with a SUD are at risk for experiencing direct effects, as parental abuse or dismissal, or unusual effects, as less family resources. The main objective of the research is to have a complete understanding of the increase in drug abuse among children, to identify the public’s opinion on the effectiveness of eradication of use of illicit drugs through drug prohibition policies and to analyse the reasons behind illicit usage of such drugs among children and its effects. The research method followed here is an empirical research method. A total of 232 samples have been taken out of which is taken through convenient sampling. Therefore necessary steps are to be taken in order to control the manufacturing as well as usage of drugs by the children by sending the children to homes and other reformatory camps who have been affected by these drugs and also it helps in reducing the crime committed by the children.
