Why Should I join a Family Support Group?
Most families dealing with drug use are looking for answers. The answers they look for initially relate to their child-where can she/he go for treatment?
In most cases, family members don’t realise that they need help for themselves.
The group can support members through difficult times sometimes just by listening, other times by sharing how they dealt with similar situations.
COMMONLY HELD MISCONCEPTIONS
"Drug use in the family only affects the person using, not other family members"
“Once I get help for the drug user – all my problems will end”
Unfortunately we have found that these and similar statements are untrue. We know that drug use affects all the family, sometimes putting a huge strain on the relationships between couples and between parents and other children.
