Your case does not have a yes or no answer. I would hire an attorney in your case to analyze your set of facts and give you a strategy on how to proceed.
Quite possibly. The case worker should have suggested drug courses for you to attend or some other course of action that would lead to reunification. If not, you can ask. You can also hire an attorney to file an action in Family Court.
