support for families of addicts
Alcohol abuse seeps into the lives of both alcoholics and their families. Consequently, during treatment addicts must learn how to live their lives without alcohol. Part of our alcohol addiction therapy involves going on excursions, giving clients a chance to practice their social skills in a sober setting. It is our belief that through these trips, counselors can help clients learn how to function in society.
We will customize a program specifically for you and your needs, in order to offer you or your loved one the best chance at success. We work with clients throughout their treatment to help them stay healthy and sober.
SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES OF ADDICTS
Families that seek help often serve as a major source of inspiration for the recovering addict. Our family addiction program offers support to relatives who are struggling to cope with addiction in the family. The goal of our family program is to reinforce how to maintain healthy relationships and go through the healing process together. Therapy not only mends the family, but it teaches relatives that the addict needs them, even if he or she has yet to recognize it. It is essential that family members realize that they didn’t cause the addiction, nor is it something they could ever cure on their own.
At Florida Addiction & Recovery Center, we understand the challenges that families of addicts go through. Consequently, our caring therapists offer support to the families of addicts, addressing the underlying causes of addiction and helping them come to terms with what they’re feeling. Whether the client is in drug treatment, alcohol treatment or in treatment for co-occurring disorders, we will help our clients and their families encourage one another.
THE FLORIDA ADDICTION & RECOVERY TREATMENT PROGRAMS
- Multi-family education groups
- Small consult sessions with one client and one family member at a time.
As the family starts to understand the implications of addiction, Florida Addiction & Recovery Center staff will make a genuine effort to help restore balance to them, encouraging the entire family unit to commit to the healing process together.
SUPPORT GROUPS FOR FAMILIES OF ADDICTS
Family members require their own support as well. Florida Addiction & Recovery Center puts the relatives of addicts in touch with support groups, where they can learn from others who have gone through many of the same struggles.
Family plays an integral role in the recovery process, and with a support system of their own, family members can work together to help the addict commit to long-term recovery.
