• Friends & Family of Substance Users

    Do you have a loved one that struggles with drugs or alcohol? Are you battling with how to be there for them while also having healthy boundaries? Perhaps you grew up with a substance using parent and felt alone, having to fend for yourself?

    Addiction is a family disease. When we see this happen to a loved one, we do everything we can to help. But sometimes, our unconditional love simply isn’t enough and that can take a toll. If you have a loved one who struggles with addiction, you likely have felt the pain, helplessness, and desperation that inevitably accompanies that affliction. When we grow up with a substance addicted parent, it can be deeply impactful and affect how we relate to others in future relationships.
