When someone you care about is struggling with substance use or a compulsive behavior, such as gambling, their actions can upend not only their life, but yours as well. It can be a challenge to deal with the strong emotions and sense of powerlessness. Gaining a better understanding of why theyโ€™re acting as they are can be a helpful first step.
