How can family members best support an addict? Often, family members are torn between being angry or enabling, neither of which are helpful.  Candace Plattor is the founder of Love with Boundaries, helping families find the most beneficial way of helping a family member beat their addiction.

Candace  has worked as an Addictions Counsellor in the Downtown Eastside area of Vancouver, BC since 1991, working with addicts, alcoholics, and the family and friends who love them. In 2001, she  graduated from the Adler School of Professional Psychology with a Masters degree (M.A.) in Counselling Psychology. She has  been in private practice for over 20 years, helping clients understand their addictive behaviours of choice, such as unhealthy relationship dynamics, problem gambling, internet addiction, disordered eating, and substance abuse ~ because it is only when we understand why we use addictive behaviours that we will be able to stop using them. She has written two books: Loving an Addict, Loving Yourself and 7 tips to Outsmarting Your Addiction
