Addiction and Burden on Family and Community

Some important reminders for all..

Family Challenges: Addiction affects not only the individual but also their family members.
Families face emotional, financial, and social burdens due to a loved one’s addiction.
These challenges include:

1.Initial Shock: Families experience shock and confusion when they first encounter addiction.
2.Social Isolation and Stigma: Addiction can lead to social isolation and negative labeling.
3.Sequence of Disorders: Families deal with emotional decline, negative behaviors,
mental disturbances, physical health issues, and overall burden.
4.Internal Family Chaos: Relationships become unstable, and financial collapse may occur.
5.Self-Protection: Family members seek information, support, and coping mechanisms.

With respect and love. 22nd March 2024, Ankara
