The stress of living with alcohol or drug addiction has social, emotional, and physical consequences. We feel afraid, confused, angry and ineffective at helping our loved one. Addiction changes the family, those who interact with the addict, and the community. The addict adapts to the addiction, and we adapt to the addict. We are traumatized by the addiction just as drugs and alcohol traumatize the addict.
When a loved one is addicted to drugs or alcohol we all as the same question: What can we do?
