    • What's Best for the Children of Vermonters With Opioid-Use Disorder?

      What’s best for the children of Vermonters with opioid-use disorder? In the Green Mountain State, heart-wrenching decisions about custody and parental rights often fall to the Department of Children and Families. In 2016 its lawyers terminated the rights of parents to their babies and toddlers at a higher rate than any other state in the nation — except Oklahoma. In the fifth episode of the “Hooked” series, Kate O’Neill explains how the overburdened, under- resourced system works. She also reveals many of the ways it doesn’t, by inadvertently punishing parents, especially for poor ones, who are trying to keep or regain custody of their kids.
