How Addiction Impacts Your Loved Ones

When it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, many people only think about the physical harm that is done to the addict and not about the other people who end up affected and hurt. Loved ones of an addict face great hardship when dealing with a family member or friend who is suffering from addiction and in need of treatment. The whole support system is in this fight together, and the goal is to strengthen relationships through an addict’s. Our addiction treatment center in Pompano Beach, Florida, shares how drug and alcohol addiction impacts your loved ones, and what you can do to come together and win the battle.

Negative Emotional Effects

People who are close to an addict can experience intense emotional feelings such as anxiety, fear, guilt, and shame. This is normal when the addiction seems to be taking over an individual’s life. This can cause tension and confusion in the family dynamic when everyone ideally wants to be supportive for the addict. At Banyan Treatment Center, our addiction counselors explain that if when these emotional effects start to impact the entire family, it is beneficial for the whole unit to engage in family therapy sessions, which benefit everyone involved. Everyone has feelings and opinions about the situation, and it’s important for everyone to be heard and understood.

It’s important to come together as a family unit to support the addict through addiction recovery. While the impacts are large, the end goal of change and sobriety for the addict should not be lost along the way.
