Al-Anon Family Support
Support for the family system is also extremely important because when exposed to someone struggling with addiction it can cause a big upset with your equilibrium as well. It is commonly reported by family members that they experience depression, anxiety, insomnia, and also affect work and social relationships. It is always recommended for the family member affected to start getting help even if the person addicted is not in treatment yet. The healthier the family system as a whole, the better for everyone’s recovery in the long term.
Al-Anon is a support group network that was developed for family members who have a loved one suffering from addiction. There are chapters throughout the United States and the services are completely free. To learn more and locate a support group in your area, click here.
