Are you worried about a family member's substance use?

I receive many emails and phone calls from people who are feeling powerless and scared about their loved one's substance use. Therapy can help but the person has to want to get control over his or her use. Talk to your family member about the possibility of therapy. If he or she is willing to give it a try, I would be happy to talk to them briefly over the phone or over email to reassure them about the process and answer any questions he or she may have.
