Understanding & Supporting Siblings Impacted by Addiction
Families are dramatically impacted when a member has a substance use disorder (SUD/addiction). While we are getting better at addressing parents’ needs, we sometimes overlook the siblings’ needs and experiences. Quite naturally, siblings may feel resentment and anger, they may desperately want to rescue their addicted sibling, or they may isolate or disconnect … either from the addicted sibling or from the entire family system.
We’ll hear from a professional who works closely with family systems, as well as other family members who will share their personal experiences.
This program is open to siblings, parents, or anyone seeking understanding about the relationship between siblings when one or more have a substance use disorder.
