If I used drugs one night when my daughter was gone at her fathers for a 4day weekend. Is that child neglect? Can they take her?

    No; they can't take her for that, and it's not considered child neglect. You weren't neglecting your child while you were using drugs one night - she was with her father for 4-day weekend and she wasn't being neglected.

    However, if you keep on using drugs when she's with you, that's a different story.

    If it was a one time thing, no, it's unlikely.

    Methamphetamine Detection Times by Type of Test:


    Up to 48 hours


    Up to 3 days


    24 to 48 hours


    Up to 90 days

    Was this your first time using it ever? It seems you already know that what you did was stupid. You don't need to be lectured more unless this is going to become a habit? If so get help not just for yourself but also for your children.

    What drug are we talking about here?

    Consider this - if  you use illegal drugs and are arrested during those few days while your daughter is at her father's house - what happens then.

    It is NEVER a good plan to use anything that will impair you in any way - especially if that something is actually also illegal.

    "They" CAN take her IF someone reports you and charges happen because of it.

    Doing drugs is not good for you or your health. It can affect the way you react to problems so it can be seen as child neglect seeing that drugs have a lasting effect on ones mind its never good to do them or have it on your record because they may say you are no longer mentally capable to raise a child.
