Addiction, Mental Health, and Related Resources for Families

Updated: September 2022

When we learn that a loved one has a substance use disorder and/or mental health challenges, it can often be accompanied by feelings of fear, shame, grief, or guilt. We all know that supporting a loved one with a substance use disorder can be both mentally and emotionally exhausting.

Families are in recovery too, so we need access to supports for our own mental health and well-being. The support of peers and friends is crucial to our self-care, so that we can be there for our loved ones.

Here’s what we love about podcasts: they help us feel the stories being told. In the case of addiction and recovery, podcasts give us access to a deeper level of connection, understanding, and empathy with the storytellers and topics. The team at SAFE Project has curated a list of podcasts that we believe can assist all of us in gaining more knowledge and perspective as we look to find solutions and provide support around addiction and mental health.
