Substance abuse among our youth today has been affecting the families of the user as well as the user themselves. In our society today, youths are constantly making choices that not only ruin their own lives, but the lives of their love ones around them. The family of the addict needs to understand that chemical dependency (drugs and alcohol) is not a character weakness, it is a disease and it has to be treated as one. Family members tend to silently concentrate on the addict and their addictive behaviors. This undercurrent can be the source of much family conflict.
