Yes, because addiction affects not only the addict but the entire family. The affected person becomes the central figure around which family members organize their behaviors and reactions.
As a result of this unhealthy living, “wounds” are formed and activated. These wounds may be long-lasting and require counseling and/or attendance at groups such as Al-Anon, Alateen, etc. However, with enhanced communication and support, healthy patterns can be integrated into the family system.
Family members can choose many different ways to approach a loved one who is dealing with an addiction. Reacting in some ways can cause distressing feelings for family members, as well as the person in recovery. Family members need to learn that they didn’t cause the disease, they can’t control it, and they can’t cure it.
Without family interaction, the recovering person learns to speak one language while family members are left to decode that language without much support. When a family member begins recovery, the dynamics of the person in recovery will begin to change as well.
