OUR FAMILY PROGRAM
Addiction is a family disease – not just in the sense that the devastation caused by addiction touches everyone who is involved, but also wreaks havoc within familial relationships.
When an addict is active in his or her addiction, he or she may be harshly abusive to the ones that provide nothing but unconditional love and support. This verbal, mental, and emotional abuse will inevitably begin to take a toll on close family members. In many cases, they will require a certain level of therapeutic care themselves. Unquestionably, relationships within the family will be harshly strained by the implications of active addiction. We have found it extremely beneficial for all members of a family to sit down together, and work through potential interpersonal trauma with a professional therapist.
