Couldn't find what you looking for?


My 13 year old grandaughter was born on methadone.  She had no problems coming off the methodone when she was born.  She has progressively had anger issues and now as a teenager become out of control.

My daughter has been clean for over 5 years, and my grandaughter did not grow up with addicted parents. Would being born addicted be affecting her behavior, anger and acting out inappropriately.  I think she may be bi polar.  Her biological father is bi polar and has anit social behaviors.  What advice can someone give me.

the most effective thing you can do is have her see a therapist who can diagnose her with the proper condition. bipolar disorder is characterized by severe depression and episodes of manis, so i don't believe this fits. Drugs can affects the development of infants very easily, and it is likely she has a chemical imbalance in her brain. as a psychology student, i recommend you take her to a psychiatrist.
