Alcohol or drug addiction affects the entire family true or false?

Alcoholism and drug addiction can, and usually does, affect the entire family. When someone is suffering from addiction, they basically become a different person and are unable to care about their family members, and themselves, in the way that they should. Sometimes family members try to help, but are discouraged when they can't change the mind of the addict. Family members need to get help just as much as the addict does. The family members can get help before the addict decides to get help. No matter what the situation is, someone's alcoholism and drug addiction affects everyone around the addict.

Hopefully this helped a little bit.
