Addictive Families
Children of addictive families do not often receive the help they need. After all, they usually rely on coping mechanisms that allow them to appease others, fly under the radar, or redirect attention. But, as Dr. Claudia Black asserts, if these children do not receive the care they need, they become vulnerable to addictions, abusive relationships and mental health disorders. Since the 1970s, Dr. Black’s work has encompassed the impact of addiction on young and adult children. Her writings and teachings have become a standard in the field of addictions. She is one of the original founders and serves on the Advisory Board for the National Association of Children of Alcoholics and the Advisory Council of the Eluna Foundation and its development of Camp Mariposa, a camp for children impacted by addiction.
