Substance use disorders, just like cancer and diabetes are best addressed and can improve when individuals and their loved ones are offered ongoing support services. Any health disorder can benefit from efforts that engage a person’s support system- families, friends and loved ones. There is very promising and encouraging evidence that reports people with a substance use disorder can reduce the incidence of relapse when their support systems improve. Family systems can become healthier, relationships can be mended and future generations are better able to earlier recognize symptoms and solutions for the disease when everyone in a family seeks recovery from substance use disorders.
