Identifying new ways of coping with addiction
These programs are designed to promote the well-being of those who live with or care about a person with addiction.
Through education and guidance participants learn they can't control their loved one's addiction, but they can take responsibility for their own health and happiness.
The stress of living with alcohol or drug addiction can have physical, emotional, social, and spiritual consequences.
By becoming aware of the beliefs and experiences that shape their own behaviors, participants identify new, healthy ways of coping with addiction and relationships.
This intensely educational experience involves:
Presentations by clinical staff
Reading and reflection
Fellowship with other participants
During the program, family members of patients have the opportunity to be involved in a family conference facilitated by a counselor. It is not necessary for your family member to be in treatment to participate and benefit from this program.
