We are excited to announce the first nationwide survey designed to document the lives of family members of people in addiction and recovery from alcohol and other drugs. While much is known about the many costs of addiction and problematic drug use, we know very little about what happens to family members of those using or in recovery. The purpose of this study is to gather information about the experiences of family members.
WHO SHOULD COMPLETE THE SURVEY?
Anyone who considers themselves a family member, friend or loved one of a person who uses or is in recovery from alcohol and other drugs problems is encouraged to complete the survey. Although the term “family” is used in this survey, this is interpreted broadly to include not only partners, parents, siblings and children of people with substance use problems, but also other intimates.
