Unhealthy – focusing on the sickest member
We held our first class last night for our Family Reach program. It was mainly an introduction to chemical dependency where five common denominators were defined among those with chemical dependencies. One particular question dealt with why is it unhealthy for every member of the family to focus upon the sickest member? The result becomes obvious as everyone else in the family will become sick too. The family member usually relinquishes control of their own lives to the substance abuser. It is vital to focus on one’s own health as well when someone in your family is battling drug and alcohol addiction. It will not help anyone if you are sick in addition to the one originally struggling. You can learn to properly help those struggling through our Family Reach program.
