When a person falls victim to substance dependency, they begin using their substance of choice compulsively. They often lose all semblance of choice over how much they ingest and how often they get drunk or high; their substance of choice begins to completely dictate how they live their lives. The lying, manipulating and emotional torment often come at the expense of those closest to the addict or alcoholic. In most cases, those closest are the immediate family members.
If you have watched someone you love struggle with active addiction for any length of time you have likely begun to feel the emotional and psychological impact. Long sleepless nights, constant fear for your loved one’s well-being… the list goes on. The impact on each individual family member is profound. The way each member of the family functions begins to shift, and what was once a healthy family dynamic begins to crumble.
