Addiction is a disease that impacts all members of a family. Isolation caused by addiction and depression wall off family members from relating well and supporting each other and maintaining positive relationships outside their immediate family.
Taking steps to share your story – even if it is still in the process of becoming whole – can be a pathway to personal healing and connection with others in the midst of a family addiction crisis.
Forums like 12 Step programs and other support groups, journaling, and talking to trusted friends provide ways to share the gift of your story to help others and to gain support in your own life.
