You don’t have to be addicted to a substance or behaviour to suffer from addiction.
Addiction has an impact on every member of a household, from the oldest members of the family to infants, toddlers and teens. When someone in your home has a drug or alcohol problem, every generation feels the consequences of that dependence, and everyone needs help dealing with these devastating effects.
You may be trying to cope with someone who has a problem. As a result, you may be anxious, confused, ashamed and exhausted.
You may also feel guilty or afraid; often putting a great deal of pressure on yourself because you think it is up to you to get the addict to stop.
Our experience has shown that families and friends often need to get outside help to realise that it is not their responsibility and that it is important that they take care of themselves.
Our research shows that doing so can lead addicts to seek help for themselves.

Chances for sustained recovery increase dramatically when families are involved, as addiction reaches far beyond the individual.
When drug addiction enters your family via one of your family members, the effect can be devastating. If you have reason to believe or even a vague suspicion that someone close to you may have a drug problem, we know how you feel. We know what it is like to be alone with this problem. We know the feelings of panic and frustration that are the result from this discovery.
Know that you are not alone & help is available for you!
