Recover The You That Left With Them

After grief recover yourself and still keep your loved one alive

Loss of a loved one, especially to drugs or alcohol leaves a special kind of grief. There is stigma about the disease, and people may pity you for not having a perfect family. You may feel people judge you for not being able to save your loved one.

Well, the truth is no one has a perfect family. Nearly every family has someone struggling with drugs or alcohol, and literally millions have lost loved ones to the disease. Substance and alcohol use disorders are chronic brain diseases that loved ones can’t cure or control. Many people, however, feel responsible for detaching or for “abandoning” loved ones they could not help or save. When you feel deeply responsible as well as sad, it’s hard to recover the you that existed before the disease damaged you all. That’s why it’s so important to recover yourself as you grieve.
