How Is Drug/Alcohol Abuse Considered A Family Disease?

Alcohol Abuse Can Be A Family Disease

To answer your query, drug and alcohol abuse can be considered a family disease because it can hurt the family emotionally, mentally, spiritually, physically, and financially. If a parent is doing excessive alcohol abuse, his work can be affected and his health can deteriorate, and if he contacts some disease, the financial situation of his family can get hurt.

If a son or a daughter in a family succumbs in alcohol, it can give grave emotional and mental disturbance to the family. I hope that I have answered your question. In case you have other questions, you can read the links below.

    It's considered hereditary because you are a result of your environment, hence, if you grow up with parents that abuse drugs/alcohol, you have a more likely chance of being like that than someone with normal parents.
