Substance Use and the Family
Congratulations for exploring my website.
Yes, congratulations, because I know that it’s scary when you realize you or a family member or loved one may have a problem with drugs or alcohol. So taking a step forward to check out what kind of help is available is definitely a big deal.
Harm Reduction Approach to Substance Use
Harm reduction doesn’t judge you for using alcohol and other drugs.
It therefore lets you take a more open, safer look at the problems in your life. Harm reduction means getting into the driver’s seat of your life.
Teens and Young Adults
Being a teenager or young adult isn’t always easy. Enjoying more freedom but still relying on your family for things can make dealing with normal stresses of a kid’s life upsetting at times. When upsets turn into worries that start affecting your mood and relationships with friends and family, having some strategies to cope better can make things easier.
