From an outsider’s point of view, it may seem as if addiction only affects the person who is addicted. However, an addiction destroys a family just as much as it destroys the person addicted.
What people don’t see, is how mentally and emotionally exhausting it is to live with an addict.
Members of the family are often torn between trying to help their addicted loved one and how to avoid being used by the addicted love one.
Below are some supportive suggestions that have been used by professionals when working with addicts and their families. We hope they can help you.
Families need to understand their role in their addicted loved one’s addiction and their recovery process.
Addiction often isolates people, leaving them open to negative influence and emotion. Together, with the support and love of their family, addicts are able to overcome their disease.
