Family members, especially siblings, experience stress and fear when a loved one is unable to stop uncontrollably drinking alcohol or using drugs. Siblings play a crucial role in the recovery process, although supporting an addict is extremely difficult. It requires patience, perseverance, and a bit of tough love.
If you are the sibling of an addict please contact us now. We will do our best to help you. My name is Raj, and my older brother was an addict for much of my life. I felt scared, lost, and alone as a child and teenager. Thankfully, my brother eventually recovered.
There are a lot of resources available today for addicts, but not very many for the siblings of addicts, who are victims. That is why I started Siblings of Addicts. Our mission is to build and foster a community for siblings of addicts, and provide them with the tools they need to see a brighter day.
To all the donors, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without your support, we cannot fulfill our mission to adolescents all over the country, and ultimately the world. I promise that your donation will go directly toward helping siblings facing the darkest period of their life. No child should suffer a life of anxiety, hopelessness, confusion, depression, and despair.
Will you help me?

A community can provide solidarity, support, and guidance for adolescents facing difficult times. Whether the community is online or in person, the most important thing is that the conversations are constructive, meaningful, and encouraging. Our goal is to build a community for adolescents everywhere.
If you need to talk to someone, please chat with us or join the conversations in our community forum. We promise to keep your anonymity so please do not hesitate to voice your feelings or concerns about your loved ones. We are here for you.
Reach out to one of our representatives. We are here to help you find the proper resources you need.
Start a discussion with other siblings, share your experiences, and find a common ground to show support for one another.
Your donation provides resources like counseling, therapy, mentorship, career coaching, and education to adolescents who need it most. Addiction is a major problem that does not discriminate. Today, 1 in 10 Americans over the age of 12 have some type of addictive behavior. Many people still do not receive the help they truly need.
