My kids were taken because I had failed a test for a drug that was prescribed to me due to me acknowledging I had a problem with pain pills when I discovered I was pregnant and did not want to harm my child and get clean. They treated me like I was trash and have terrorized my life ever since
Yes. DCS / CPS can initiate an investigation and remove your children from your home if they have probable cause to believe the children are in danger. You admitted you had a problem, which is a good first step. Consult with your attorney, whether you are paying for one or if one has been court-appointed to represent you and follow their advice. Once you make progress with your plan the children will be slowly integrated back into your home.
