Families are the lesser-discussed casualties of addiction. For practically every one of the over 23 million Americans suffering from chemical dependency, there is a whole separate group of people suffering right alongside them. This family doesn’t even have to be blood-related. They can be anybody in our lives to whom we look for love, guidance, support and affection. When addiction threatens the family unit, loved ones of addicts can, and often do, become paralyzed with fear and uncertainty, resulting in inactivity and even enabling. Rather than let addiction and chemical dependency destroy the fabric of their family and threaten their loved one’s life, families can educate and empower themselves to guide their addicted loved one toward treatment.
