Our intent: Provide meaningful advice and assistance to friends of families with a member who is coping with addiction.
Families are the first line of defense against and response to addiction. While the resource information provided in the Prevention and Treatment section will be of use to families as well, this section will be specifically designed for the families of users or potential users. We will provide a running list of lessons learned, beginning with when children are young and extending all the way through the chain of use, addiction, treatment, and transition out of treatment. We will also provide a list of support groups, which can be an incredibly useful resource for families undergoing a loved one’s addiction issues.
