If you’ve just realized that your loved one has an addiction, you’re likely feeling overwhelmed by the ramifications of the news. You may struggle just to get through your days, and that’s entirely understandable. After all, you’re coping with many practical concerns, from treatment options to family finances to insurance coverage.
But perhaps in quiet moments you also feel a deep sense of pain, loss, and isolation. This, too, is normal. When a loved one is in the midst of an active addiction, they probably aren’t offering the kind of support and companionship you’d like to receive from them.
As such, feelings of isolation and loneliness begin to build up for you. You may start to think that no one else understands what you’re going through, or that you don’t deserve help and support because you’re not the one with an active addiction. But that’s simply not the case.
When your loved one is dealing with an addiction, it’s imperative that you receive the connection, support, and resources you need to effectively care for yourself and your family. That’s why we created this free eBook, Supporting A Loved One Struggling With Addiction.
