Here are some valuable points on how to manage stress if you live with a parent who is a substance abuser. You might say, “This is easier said than done.” If you think it through you can make it happen.

1)      You are important and therefore your health is important. Repeat this to yourself everyday.

2)      Be sure that you eat healthy foods, exercise and get enough sleep. If your home does not contain enough food find out where you can eat or if you can get an allowance for shopping for food. If you have a part time job put some money aside for healthy foods.

3)      Do you have someone you can talk to about your upsets? If not consider  joining a group that honors your privacy such as Alateen, go as a guest to Alcoholics Anonymous and pour out your hurts. Go to your library and look up the Resource list in FOR TEENAGERS LIVING WITH A PARENT WHO ABUSES ALCOHOL/DRUGS

4)      Be sure to get an annual check up. If your parents don't have a doctor for you ask your school nurse where you can get one. You can tell the physician about your problems at home.

Take good care of yourself. You deserve it.
