Sobriety means making a lot of big changes and giving up alcohol and drugs is only the beginning. Getting sober, while a step into recovery can also unleash an array of emotional experiences that families find themselves grappling.  And for most people in recovery, saying goodbye to drugs or alcohol is like losing a best friend, which can be difficult to understand as a family member. Even while addiction was destroying your life, that constant companion was always there.
