William Blake Substance Abuse

Satisfactory Essays
Blake is nine years old. Blake’s father would abuse him and his mother until his father was charged for having heroin on him and showing up drunk to pick up Blake from school. His mother was mainly working all hours of the day due to the father not having a job and spending the money on drugs and alcohol. Blake spent most of his time in his bedroom not wanting to come out because he is scared of the world that is out there. Blake’s dad never let him leave the house. It was school and straight home kind of situation. By the age of twelve, Blake started to hang out with the wrong group of people, stole things, and started to skip school. His teacher knew what Blake has been through and let it slide for a while until it started to become a habit.
