Abstract: The role of in-home work with substance use affected family members has great potential for addressing family and personal issues that are often not well addressed by continuing care interventions that involve limited contact with the family and the impact alcohol and other drug "abuse" has on the family environment. This article reviews the importance of involving the family in the recovery process and offers comparative advantages of an in-home visitation approach for assisting the substance user with maintaining substance use avoidance, reintegrating with the family, and addressing unresolved family Issues affecting children and spousal relationships.
