PAL believes strongly in the value of good counseling when dealing with family members sufferring from Substance Use Disorder. Finding a good counselor can be difficult but there are many to choose from. We suggest that you find someone specifically with training in substance abuse such as a LISAC (Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor) – (even if the counseling is for you – not your addicted loved one). Also, consider the motto of trying them out one time to determine if you think they will be of help to you and lastly by attending PAL meetings, other members may share their personal experiences and we find this to be extremely helpful in determining who to see.
