Does your loved one know about your support group(s)?


Have you told your loved one about any treatment or support or community you’re involved with relating to their substance use disorder? For example, the Village Community, Al-Anon/Nar-Anon, therapy, or any other support? If so, how did that conversation go and what was the response?


My husband who is my qualifier has in the past encouraged me to attend Al-Anon meetings. He even introduced me to a woman in his AA meetings so we could talk and I could I could gain a different perspective which was helpful.


That is really great to hear! Have you continued to go to Al-Anon? Has it been helpful? My husband is really supportive of my Al-Anon involvement. He knows how much it helps me and I think in turn knows that it helps him, too. Whenever he’s struggling and I ask, “How can I support you through this?” he tells me, “Just keep doing what you’re doing.”
