We know that challenging family circumstances, substance abuse, violence and neglect all present significant risks to children. The marked increase in opiate addiction adds new dangers as addicts too often spread violence and crime to their families and their communities.</p> <div class="premium-message"><p> The full text of this article is only available to online subscribers.</p> <p> Are you an online subscriber? <a href="/user">Click to login</a>. <a href="/onlinesubscribe"> </a></p> <p> <a href="/onlinesubscribe">Click here</a> to learn more about our online subscription options.

Our unemployment rate is consistently among the lowest in the nation.
