If you are someone who loves someone misusing substances, it is likely that you want to help and want things to change. It’s also likely that you feel either incredibly overwhelmed or confused with where to start and what to do. Luckily there are lots of things you can do!
When my daughter first started misusing substances, I knew I needed to change my approach to parenting, but I wasn’t sure how. When I learned that people with boundaries can be more compassionate because they don’t feel taken advantage of, it sparked a major realization for me.
