When family members and friends take an active role in addiction recovery,
recovery rates improve. If your loved one is entering a drug rehab, you
can support him or her by learning about the nature of addiction. Knowing
why your loved one has behaved in certain ways can help strengthen your
relationship with him or her.
Watching this video may give you a better sense of the critical role family
