Drug and alcohol addiction is an illness and the presence of it is felt by the whole family. If you have a spouse, child or parent who suffers from drug or alcohol addiction, you’ve likely suffered from the symptoms and effects created by the illness. Being the loved one of an addict is one of the most difficult experiences you can go through in life. No matter how much you try to help your loved one or separate yourself from their addiction, the effects of drugs and alcohol have probably been stronger than your efforts. Having an addict in the family is not your fault, and it can quickly become a situation that’s too big to deal with alone.
When your loved one is treated at a substance abuse treatment facility, the family support can help you work through the effects his or her addiction has caused on your life. The support provided to you and your loved one by trained addictions counselors at the substance abuse treatment center can provide you with hope, while giving you the tools you need to reclaim your lives. Contact an intake counselor today to start breaking free from some of these effects:
An addict will rationalize away his or her addiction by stating that it’s no one else’s problem, but you know differently. You’ve experienced the emotional downward spiral as your loved one’s addiction has worsened. Without help, your loved one will continue to become increasingly consumed by addiction and so will your family. A substance abuse treatment center can help your loved one recover from addiction. As he or she receives care and treatment, you can also receive the support you and your family need from family support groups within or outside of the treatment facility. The intake counselor at a substance abuse treatment facility can help you and your family members find an appropriate support group, as well as family counseling services.
