Substance misuse and substance use disorders often have an adverse impact on families and their individual members, including children. Yet little attention is paid to the impact of SUDs on the family perspective or on the particular needs inherent to the situation. This webinar covers facilitating treatment engagement, helping family members support a loved one’s recovery, and connecting the family unit and individuals with help and support. These skills increase awareness of how a family functions can improve the emotional health of its members.
