When a loved one abuses drugs or alcohol, families suffer financially, functionally, and emotionally. To understand more about drug and alcohol abuse and its effects on the family, take a look at this infographic from an Oregon drug rehab center. It offers a helpful glimpse at addiction in the U.S. and can help families understand when it’s time to seek help.
