The Role of Death in the Addict Family
Coleman, Sandra B.; Stanton, M. Duncan
Journal of Marriage and Family Counseling, 4, 1, 79-90, Jan 78
Drug addiction is a potentially life-threatening problem with suicidal ramifications. Within the family of the addict, addiction takes on a special, participatory, meaning; the addicted member is treated as one undergoing a slow death. Treatment can make the mourning explicit. The death issue can be a vehicle for family change. (Author)
