The objective of our family program is to create an opportunity to heal the members of the family and provide a better foundation for healthy, long-term drug & alcohol addict recovery. The family addiction program at our rehab is designed to facilitate healing for the whole family by including them in the treatment process. Doing so provides a better transition from rehab to every-day life, and it gives the family a sense of cohesiveness and support in the addiction rehab process.
Family members need to understand the basic philosophy and practices that are being taught to their loved one who is in our addict recovery program. Without such an understanding, the family can feel disconnected and uninvolved in this important process of recovery. Family members can provide an invaluable source of support when they understand addiction and the rehab process. Otherwise, the family will most likely repeat old habits, triggering addictive behaviors for their recovering loved one. Family members are encouraged to participate in addiction counseling, which gives an opportunity to address issues of trust, poor boundaries, enabling behavior and the emotional pain of living with addiction.
The addict recovery education sessions drive our program, making it very important for family members to be exposed to information that will help the healing process. Learning about the disease of addiction, how it can be managed and how to avoid relapse are important lessons that help all family members.
An Introduction to 12-Step Programs
12-Step programs (such as Alcoholics Anonymous) have long been an important part of the recovery process and the foundation for many recovery programs. Serving people for over 70 years, 12-Step programs provide simple tools for living based on a set of principles and a reliance on the fellowship generated by people who share the same experiences, while offering their support as part of a lifelong process of recovery. Our family addiction program seeks to introduce family members to this network of support that has helped millions of people throughout its history overcome drug and alcohol addiction.
