One of the toughest problems faced by families today is learning that their loved one, has an addiction or mental illness. It is normal for family members to feel crushed, hopeless, frightened, and overwhelmed by the problem.
So, how does one cope? By learning warning signs, physical & behavioral signs, and symptoms of the addiction/mental health disorder. Also, by interacting with other family member and/or sharing your own story or concerns, one gains support and learns that are not alone in their journey.
