There Is Hope, There is Help, There is Healing

The use of alcohol and drugs by a friend or family member can leave us with many unanswered questions, unable to understand what is happening and feeling like you are enduring life on an emotional rollercoaster. You may find yourself struggling with a number of painful and conflicting emotions, including guilt, shame, fear and self-blame. And, because of another's continued use of alcohol and drugs, it is easy to become frightened, frustrated, scared and angry.  Do Not Give Up!  There is Help!

Like any other chronic disease, addiction to alcohol and other drugs affects people of all ages regardless of income, educational background, country of origin, ethnicity, sexuality, and/or community where they live. Anyone can become addicted to alcohol and drugs and anyone can be affected by another person’s addiction -- especially friends and family members. In fact, more than 23 million people over the age of 12 are addicted to alcohol or drugs.  As a friend or family member, You Are Not Alone!

NCADD Affiliates offer a range of services including help for individuals and family members. If you are concerned about your own alcohol or other drug use or that of someone you care about — a child or other relative, a friend or co-worker — please make the contact.  You will be able to speak to someone who will listen, assess your needs and provide information about available services, costs and how to deal with another person’s alcohol and/or drug use.  Help is just a call or visit away—Make the contact now!
