    How Can Families Best Support?

    Thu Dec 16, 2021 9:01 pm

    I'm a loved one of someone who is continually relapsing. How do I approach the "elephant in the room" without destroying connection?

    Hi @NewDayNewStart ,

    It can be a tricky situation to be in trying to approach the elephant in the room and keeping things on an even keel. What you are currently doing by reaching out to see if our members can suggest something that will work for you is a great idea.

    As well trying to get support for yourself where you can work through what you want to communicate may be helpful.

    Stay connected.
