Your support can save lives.

Loving someone who lives with addiction is not an easy journey, but you are not alone. With the support of your community, you can help save lives by being there for your family and friends when they need you.

You are a steady factor in their life who does not pass judgment. Below, we've compiled stories and resources to help you along the way.

How to respond if you suspect a family member or friend is struggling with SUD

It’s important to process your own emotions and make a plan to support them. You should remind yourself that recovery is possible. To get started, we recommend seeking support for yourself. This support may be a professional therapist well-versed in substance use disorder or a support group. There, you will find guidance from others who are experienced with the matter.

We do not recommend confronting your loved one abruptly or without notice. Give yourself time to remain calm, think through options and get help from others.
