Program Abstract: Addiction affects more than one life: family, friends, and communities also experience the effects of a person’s disorder. This program will explore the full spectrum of needs and services related to the family of someone with an addiction disorder. It will analyze key factors that can support or impede the recovery process, including employment, health care, children, mental health, and housing.
