Not completely sure what you are asking. However, this is a complicated issue. Crimes increase based on substance abuse for many reasons, one of which is tied to people's willingness to commit crimes to get money for drugs/alcohol. Additionally, since a lot of drug use in and of itself is illegal, just using the drug increase crime. I don't know what you are asking about child abuse and neglect.
