Family Support for Addiction
Our primary mission at Addiction Management is to hold your hand and let you know that you aren’t alone in this difficult journey. We shall help you in every possible way to ensure that your loved one overcomes their addiction and resume a normal daily life. Addiction can affect family members in significant ways, especially if the addicted is the primary financial provider for the family.
Contrary to popular belief, addiction does not discriminate against class, sex, age, or race. Families may believe that family members addicted to drugs lack moral principles, but that isn’t always the case. There are a wide range of reasons that can lead someone into addiction, without realizing it until it is too late to control on their own. Drug and alcohol addiction is a complex disease that can be increasingly difficult to understand. Convincing an addict to quit drug use and resume their normal life takes more than a strong will and good intentions. Addiction Management is here to assist you and your loved ones through their journey to recovery.

Recovery for the Whole Family
Drug addiction affects far more than just users. The families and friends of people who find themselves struggling with substance use disorder (SUD) often undergo tremendous amounts of stress, despair, and grief. It’s not uncommon for the parents of addicts to feel as if they’ve lost their child, and there is a certain level of mourning involved that can lead to the development of depression.
The role of family members in addiction recovery cannot be understated. Families provide emotional support, encouragement and, most importantly, love that helps a person in recovery feel more motivated, optimistic and empowered about their new way of living without substances.
Every family is different. Some parents and siblings may have been helpful and guiding from the start of a person’s addiction, while others became frustrated watching their loved one’s spiral out of control. Damaged relationships are common among addicts, and Addiction Management offers family counseling services that can help empower individuals, reunite families, and allow them to help one another through the recovery process.
There are many external concerns for the family of an addict; it’s important to understand that the families of people struggling with drug addiction are going through an emotionally turbulent time as well. As much hope and relief they may have that their loved one is finally seeking help, there is also fear, anger and possibly even resentment over things that transpired during a person’s worst periods of drug abuse.
Helping the Family and Friends of Those in Drug Abuse and Addiction Recovery
Addiction can ravage all kinds of relationships — those between parents and children, children and parents, spouses, siblings, and very close friends who are like family. We recognize that the family and friends of struggling addicts need time to feel like individuals, too.
Our family support for addiction programs recognize the struggles that you’re dealing with as your loved one recovers, and we’re here to help you be strong throughout the process.
Education is one of the principles of addiction recovery. Developing a greater understanding of addiction as a mental health problem can stop parents and siblings from blaming the addict for their condition. The treatment for addiction goes beyond conscious choice or willpower.
Learning about addiction can help you have more constructive conversations with family members and lead them toward a more positive mindset.
Family support services are an incredible way for parents of addicts, siblings and even children to learn more about addiction and recovery. The support services help people process their feelings in an accepting, helpful environment as well as gain the emotional support and guidance they need to move forward.
Encouragement is Key
Families overcome addiction by believing the future is brighter than the present and more powerful than the past. Together, friends and family should encourage one another with an attitude of hopefulness, celebrating small and large milestones, and growing from past experiences. It won’t be easy, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be worth it.
Together, encouragement can help people get in touch with themselves and become who they need to support their loved one on their path to sobriety. Contact us today to get started.
