This event has expired

From the closest relative to the most distant, everyone suffers some level of distress when addiction grips the family. Possible effects of family addiction include:2

  • Mental health problems worsened by persistent stress, such as:
    • Anger and resentment.
    • Anxiety.
    • Hopelessness and depression.
    • Risky sexual behavior and promiscuity.
    • Shame.
    • Isolation.
  • Physical health issues resulting from an intense focus on the person using substances rather than your own needs.
  • Financial issues stemming from supporting a loved one’s habit, having been stolen from, paying legal fees, and having financial resources needed for housing, utilities, and nutrition being spent on drugs and/or alcohol.
