    Good day! I am Lizzy and I am just a newly-registered member. What brings me here is that I wanted to share my brother's road to recovery from his addiction to drugs. Truly, the family of the patient would be really be affected in many ways- psychologically, physically, and spiritually. Like some psychological illnesses wherein families of patients also attend counselings and briefings, we also have undergone that. I want to share my brother's story and our story and try to inspire others who are going through the same dilemma. It's good to be a member here!

    Very nice of you @Lizzy19ph wanting to walk the road to healing side by side with your brother.

    By doing this you are not only encouraging him to recovery, but also to heal your family because certainly having to deal with the addiction of a member is painful for all .

    Even though is family what can make someone stronger to complete the process and recover a sober lifestyle.
