Counseling and Other Support
An individual’s addiction or substance abuse significantly impacts loved ones and takes an emotional and sometimes financial toll on his or her family. The Recovery Center recognizes the multiple layers of distress these individuals have experienced by watching their loved one battle this devastating disease.
Our licensed counselors provide therapy and support specifically to family members to help them in their own unique recovery process. Staff also educate loved ones to understand the role they play in helping a recovering addict maintain sobriety. This strategy complements the intensive therapy provided to addicts to increase likelihood for successful recovery and long-term healthy environments at home.
Furthermore, family are educated about the disease of addiction and the types of changes addicts will go through during recovery. They will learn about a recovering addict’s susceptibility to future stress, what triggers to look for, and how to help loved ones cope with these stressors utilizing strategies that don’t involve alcohol, drugs or other substances.
