When someone is addicted to alcohol or drug addiction the rest of the family can find themselves at a loss for effective ways to help and be of support. In an effort to help some family members can inadvertently be reinforcing  the addicted person’s destructive patterns. We are not here to blame or point fingers, but these type of ineffective strategies must be addressed and adjusted. If this type of pattern continues once your loved one has completed and addiction treatment program it could increase the chances of a relapse. Your loved one has made positive steps in address their addiction.

Family Counselling for Addiction Recovery Can Help with The Emotional Rollercoaster

They have started changing their thoughts and behaviors in an effort to recovery. This is a very emotional and difficult process to go through. Your loved one is taking on the responsibility for changing their behavior. Addiction is often referred to as a “family disease”, so it would only stand to reason that family members take responsibility for making changes as well. Again this isn’t to lay blame for addiction on family members. Relationships can often be difficult to balance, especially when addiction is involved. If one side of the relationship is making changes and the other side is staying, an imbalance is created. The good news is that once family members learn and develop more functional relationship building techniques. Once families implement these strategies they don’t want to go back to the way things were.

Our approach is based on a CRAFT Model (Community Reinforcement and Family Training). This is a proven psychologically based curriculum designed to repair tension and rebuild relationships. You’ll learn about how addiction has affected the family. With a functional guideline to follow you’ll be able to set healthy boundaries, communicate more effectively, move towards forgiveness, and start rebuilding trust.

Living with addiction has created difficulties for everyone. However, now there is an opportunity for the family to come together and make a real difference in the addicted person’s recovery. Your family’s relationship to the addicted person has deep bonds and connections. These family bonds and connections which have been damaged by addiction can be repaired and utilized to help support their recovery.

In the convenience of your home, via Zoom or in our office the family counsellor will help you begin the process of healing and reestablishing your family’s balance. You will be given help to understand the complex nature of addiction and all of the ways it manifests itself in denial, in simple easy to understand terms. With this information the family will then begin a process of exploring personal relationships to seek out specific areas of concern. Once identified these concern are addressed with evidence-based problem solving techniques. When your private family program sessions are completed you will have a new understanding and outlook on how to be an effective support system for your addicted loved one, and you entire family will moving towards stability and balance.

 The opposite of alcohol and drug addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection.
