I wish to inform you that laws of your state will govern your situation. In this regard generally you can have your child custody through court order. As you have been ordered supervised visitation therefore in Court ordered child custody you can show that now you are clean off drugs.

How long have you been off drugs? That will be a factor. Go along with the supervised visitation until you have a good enough record, consistent with showing up on time, observed to be interacting well with the children and they with you -- and then petition to get your children back.

A month or two clean I doubt will convince anyone since recitivism is so high with those who have been addicted to drugs. Cooperate with the case worker and my guess, only a guess since state agencies have their own criteria and some is subjective evaluation by the case worker, is that six months to a year is what you are probably looking at to regain custody of your children.
