Problems with drugs and alcohol affect millions of Americans’ lives each and every day. Many people live in relationships with others who have a drug or alcohol problem, and don’t know where to turn or what to do. Others have friends or co-workers they’d love to help out, but don’t how to help them.

Alcohol and drug problems don’t go away on their own. And they rarely get better just with the passage of time, unless the person has made a concerted effort and pledge to change.

Do you know someone who has an alcohol or drug problem?

If so, this week’s video from Psych Central’s Ask the Therapists Daniel J. Tomasulo, Ph.D. & Marie Hartwell-Walker, Ed.D. may be able to help you.

Dr. Marie and Dr. Dan host many videos on relationship and mental health topics here on our blog and you can check them out on our YouTube channel. Want to learn more about Dr. Marie and Dr. Dan?
