happy family

In this module, we discussed how having a relative with a substance use problem can take a toll and can negatively affect your emotional and physical well-being. We emphasized the importance of addressing your own needs and developing a self-care plan. When you prioritize your own self-care, you are healthier and better able to support your relative.
