It's very possible. The behavior of a parent, plays a large part in custody cases. If one of the parents (or both) are considered unfit for whatever reason. It is highly unlikely they will be granted or retain custody of the child(ren). Either parent with an alcohol/drug problem would not be looked on favorably by a judge in a custody case. There would be strong potential for child endangerment and/or neglect.
