Summary:
When there's an addict in the family, you may find yourself in a codependent role: trying so hard to keep your loved one alive, out of jail, or emotionally appeased that you actually prevent them from realizing they need help. Barnett offers a step-by-step guide to dealing with a loved one's addiction, coping with the emotional hurdles of having an addicted family member, and making informed decisions on how to best help them-- and yourself.
