Supporting someone through their challenges with substance use can make loved ones feel unsupported themselves.
Substance use is a disorder, and whether it’s affecting your child, partner, spouse, family member or friend, it’s a disorder like any other.
That means everyone connected to it should have support and that, ideally, includes you.
Some of the feelings you may be experiencing can include: fear of talking about what’s really happening, worrying people may not understand, feeling “off” or as though you are a burden. If any of these sound familiar to you, it’s okay, we’ve been there, too.
Start by talking to us. We can connect you with support.
