Recovery requires family support. Family members of individuals dealing with substance misuse can be an important source of support to spark recovery. Family supporters need nourishment for their own tolerance, spiritual and emotional flexibility to be able to meet the demands of their roles and responsibilities supporting others. It is important for families to build their own wellness self-care skills to be a good source of support.
