Details for Policy Paper 6. Addiction in the Family

Name:Policy Paper 6. Addiction in the Family

Feb 2016

This AR Policy Paper, focusing on the family members affected by addiction, is divided into three parts: The first summarises the stressors experienced by adult family members of close relatives with alcohol, drug or gambling problems, the coping dilemmas they face, their needs for information and support, and their heightened risks for ill-health. The second part looks again at these themes, but, specifically, for children and young people who are affected by living with parents or carers with such problems. In the third part of the paper, some of the difficulties and barriers to routinely providing help for affected family members, whether children or adults, are considered.
