Loved Ones of Substance Abusers

Addiction affects thousands of families across the country. Seeing any member of your family struggling with addiction means that you’re inevitably faced with a lot of concerns. These may include how to deal with an addict, how to support their recovery, how to not enable them and or how to take care of yourself in the process. There are mental health professionals that specialize in everything from intervention to helping you cope with the reality that you have little to no control over your loved one’s addiction. Individual therapy, mutual support groups and family therapy are all useful tools in helping people find peace and hope in recovery.
