No one in a family is spared from the affects of alcohol or drug addiction and many often suffer alone in silence. More than one-half of adults in the U.S. have a close family member who has abused alcohol or is addicted to drugs. Family members of the addict may be abused physically or verbally demeaned and possibly neglected.
