Talking to children about addiction is hard enough, but how do you broach the subject when one of their role models is an addict? Discussing a parent’s addiction is important and one of the most beneficial things you can do for your child. Studies show that “More than 28 million Americans are children of alcoholics, yet addiction isn’t being talked about in most homes.” Lack of this open dialogue among families can lead to lifelong problems. “As children learn to fend for themselves to survive, unpredictability and chaos become the norm in addicted homes.” Without a parent to explain the hardships that addiction can create, children are more at risk for becoming an addict themselves, or getting into a relationship with an addict. Below is a helpful article filled with tips and informative content on how to have this important discussion with your children.

Family therapy is often a helpful tool for those who have a loved one suffering from addiction. Family therapy assists in opening lines of communication in a safe and loving environment. To learn more about family therapy at The Bergand Group, contact us today.
