Substance Abuse 411-#7-Families Anonymous-Tom

Substance abuse not only affects the abuser but also the abuser’s family.  Many times family members become ill themselves as they try to “fix” the abuser.

Families Anonymous is an organization that helps family members to realize that they must take care of themselves first.

Tom tells us his story and how Families Anonymous has helped him and others live a better life through its 12 Step program.
