In the beginning, the concept of family burden was applied to chronic psychiatric disorders, especially schizophrenia, and substance abuse has been included much later. In this review, the association between burden of care and substance abuse is discussed. The predictors and the mediators of family burden are mentioned. Stress-coping-resilience model is invoked to understand the interaction among several factors. Finally, a possible way to deal with family burden is conjectured.
