This book is designed to help anyone who is concerned about a friend or family member who is drinking too heavily or taking drugs. Written in an accessible jargon-free manner, it outlines how you can help someone on the road to recovery, pointing out some of the common pitfalls that many friends and family make when trying to deal with complex and sometimes seemingly insurmountable problems caused by, or as a consequence of, drugs and/or drinking. Providing valuable background information on the most common drugs used (including alcohol), this book offers important advice regarding signs to look out for and the health risks of continued use. There is also a section on individuals who have mental health issues alongside substance use as well as the problem of combining alcohol with drugs, or using more than one drug. However, the crucial part of this book is the down-to-earth, practical advice and guidance on how you can help your friend or relative overcome drug or alcohol use. There will be occasions when you will both need the help of a professional and this book provides details of organisations you can contact. All in all, this is a book that will offer valuable support as you help someone recover from a drug and/or alcohol problem. A percentage of all royalties from the sale of this book are donated to charity.
