Substance Abuse Effects on Marriage and Relationships
Over many years counselling couples, I have
witnessed the devastating effects that substance abuse has had on family life.
Substance abuse, which tends to be the main cause of family breakdowns, can vary
from the overuse of prescription medication, illegal drugs or alcohol abuse. In
our society, it is government supported, and they claim huge amounts of tax.
The degree to which the user is using will vary. A person is considered an
addict when they experience financial loss; breakdown in relationships; child
negligence; and find themselves breaking the law to support their habits. Furthermore,
they are affecting others due to their addiction. By the time these and other
consequences occur, the effects of substance abuse are usually so far reaching
that the person should seek treatment and begin counseling, for themselves and
their family. If your partner or someone close to you is affecting your life it
is vital that you keep high self-esteem.
To achieve this, you need to download a copy of our e books “Secrets to
a Romantic Love Affair in One Week.” Each book will unquestionably give you
skills to cope with living with a partner suffering from substance abuse.
Whatever your situation is, you will find the answers, tips, advice or
resources in these books. The information found may help, empower and guide you
in your quest for a healthier happy life.
