Living with someone who has a substance use disorder can put you at risk of suffering mental or physical abuse as well. Oftentimes, parents and significant others are reluctant to report these types of incidents.
The effects a substance use disorder has on family members can lead them to feeling helpless, anxious, or depressed. Some family members may begin to self-medicate in order to cope with the pain they feel.
