When someone in the family or community is dealing with substance abuse, the experience can be disconcerting for family members and other concerned persons.
The National Institutes of Health defines drug addiction as a chronic brain disease that causes a person to take drugs repeatedly, despite the harm they cause. Certain factors, such as mental health problems, trouble at home, and one’s biology, can put some people at closer risk of drug addiction.

Success in treating drug addiction relies not only on the efforts of therapists and counselors but also on family members. When family members understand the cause of the addiction and the reasons that led to it, then they are more likely to develop effective communication between themselves and their loved ones. This promotes a strong support system that encourages the individual to commit to treatment and sobriety.
