It is important to have a support system. Whether that support system is your family is up to you and how safe you feel with them. Chances are they already know or suspect that something is wrong. Our experience is that the addict is in denial when it comes to their problem…and those around them are wondering when the breakthrough will happen. So, the short answer is that you don’t have to do anything…but it will help your recovery to decide who your support system will be and reach out for help.
