Addiction affects not only the individual, but also the entire family unit. Many times the addiction of the individual has had a substantial negative impact on the health of the family. The majority of the time trust between the addict and other members of the family is gone, and the family members are left hurt and confused. This is where family addiction counseling becomes essential.
The family will need to recover along with the individual in our care. Members of the family will have their own stresses and feelings related to addiction that will need to be addressed. Family members will learn skills that will help them, as individuals and a family unit, create a healthy atmosphere for their loved one.
Educating the family, in addition to the addict, helps everyone involved understand the addiction process. This is of monumental importance in recovery, as a support system is vital to staying sober. Families will learn about the disease of addiction, enabling, and how to support their loved one in their recovery in healthy ways.
Family members benefit from knowing they are not alone in helping loved ones through the recovery journey. They also need support, and self-care is critical. Individuals can focus on their well-being while caring for a loved one by:
