This study aims to assess the subjective benefits of participation in face-to-face meetings for both Learn to Cope affiliates and their family members with addiction problems; to examine the extent to which Learn to Cope is associated with improving its members’ understanding of and competence in dealing with their loved ones’ addiction as well as helping their loved ones’ chances of recovery from addiction.
