As a person’s addiction progresses, the family of the addicted person often experiences the development of another disease without realizing it—the disease of codependency. With a loved one in active chemical addiction, it is easy for the lives of the other family members to become absorbed in the details of damage control and crisis management. In this situation, family members often forget to take care of themselves. Everyone suffers as a result. Patrice Alexander and Travis Ramsey talk about their experience working with families of MARR clients over the years. They explain how addiction functions a family disease and how setting boundaries can be the most loving step that families can take for their loved ones and for themselves.
