Jared* was looking for assistance with 27-year-old brother in Victoria, BC. Jared was told by other agencies to kick his brother out of the house and wait until he was ready to change. All these agencies failed to provide any support resources for the substance-affected family members, so we offered some resources that Jared and his family could access in order to learn how to establish boundaries needed for positive, supportive relationships during addiction, treatment, and recovery.
