Abstract: 

Objectives: While substances abuse is considered as an individual act, the negative consequences affect suffered people and their family. Violent, child and spouse abuse, secondary physical and mental illnesses, and finally suicide are among the common substances abuse consequences. The paper addresses to the history of a family in which substance abuse associated with four committed suicides.
Case report: M’s family who live in a small city in Kermanshah province (western part of Iran) was referred to a psychiatrist as a suicidal family. Father and his three sons who all addicted to opium had attempted to suicide one by one. The problem had been started with father addiction and his sons modeling from him. After immigration to Tehran for job finding, the second son attempted to suicide by opium over dose. Several months later, the oldest son attempted to suicide by hanging. Four months later, father who suffered from severe guilty feeling attempted to suicide by opium over dose. In fact three committed suicides happened in one year. Approximately three years later other son attempted to suicide by hanging. This is the beginning of the unfinished and unsuccessful story of other family member’s suicide ideation and privileging atmosphere of anxiety on the family.
Conclusion: The negative substances abuse consequences on the family are considerable and can affect the family mental health. When they are complicated with other problems such as suicide, the power of lasting damage is more, and specific interventions are required. Family intervention and follow up is recommended.
