The individuation of a specific style of the family with drug addicted individuals, shouldn’t be solely researched in a specific systemic model of drug addiction, but rather in a state of general suffering among the members of the family group. The choice to develop addictive symptoms is popular to the point that in order to understand it we must explore patterns and myths of the actual social context. In this context a variety of offers are made available, and they are able to meet precisely addictive needs, according to markets’ logic and social rules. In this way, dependence is established and mystified by the appearance of a free personal choice, of which drugs represent only one of the existing possibilities. Drug addiction phenomenon relational meaning then, pairs with morphostatic organisation and social myths. In a similar way to all other forms of symptoms, they strongly underline system disfunctions, and dramatically suggest change. Key words: Drug Addiction, social myths, symptom meaning
