Is there hope?
Not every family is affected the same when there is substance abuse in the home. Families that maintain certain routines such as holidays,
and movie nights can help lessen the chaos. Having a parent or guardian who is able to provide consistency, nurturing and support can help reduce confusion and strengthen children. Children and adult children often report feeling lonely, unloved, lost, depressed, anxious and burdened with the family secret, with the effects lasting well into adulthood.
