When Someone You Love Abuses Alcohol or Drugs (2003).   

This book is for children and teens who have problems with family members such as parents, grandparents, or siblings who abuse drugs or alcohol.  It explains what addiction is, how it is treated, and how to best handle your feelings as well as how to deal with the addicted relative.  As of July 2008, this title is no longer available, as the publisher went out of business.  You might find it used online.  Some are available through Amazon. I am hoping a new version will be published soon.
