Coping Kit: Dealing with Addiction in Your Family

Price: $0.00


Written by family members for family members, the Coping Kit provides an overview of a wide range of information and resources that are relevant to the different stages of substance use and addiction.

This booklet focuses on questions, issues, and practical problems faced by parents, guardians, and loved ones of people who use drugs. It provides valuable information about substances and how to minimize risks, how to communicate with loved ones, dealing with the criminal justice system, and accessing treatment and recovery services.

The Coping Kit resource was developed by From Grief to Action, a volunteer-based, not-for-profit association that provides a support network for families and friends affected by drug use, and updated in collaboration with the Canadian Mental Health Association - BC Division, BC Centre on Substance Use (BCCSU), and Pivot Legal Society.


Please note BCCSU has temporary paused shipments for this resouce as a direction of the Public Health Agency of Canada.
