From Grief to Action’s Coping Kit

Dealing with Addiction in Your Family

From Grief to Action


This toolkit is for parents or caregivers who are dealing with a loved one's substance use. It’s a helpful tool whether you’re concerned about a loved one’s early, experimental substance use or are concerned about a more serious substance use problem. It’s also useful for other family members or friends. You’ll find information about drugs and substance use, strategies for supporting a loved one, strategies for taking care of yourself, and treatment options—all from families who have been there themselves.
