It is physically and emotionally draining to love someone who has a problem with drugs or alcohol. The person you love may at times morph into an unpredictable, secretive and even violent stranger. Yet walking away is not always a simple option. This book helps family members see the dynamics of their relationship with the addict and to take control of their own lives and needs. It helps them to make decisions about the relationship’s future and shows them how to remain sane when everything seems out of control.
Best for: Family members who are struggling with the results of a loved one’s harmful drug or alcohol use, and who are looking for ways to improve their relationship or to protect themselves.
Less suited to: Individuals who have made a decision to walk away from a relationship.
