Watching a loved one suffer from a substance use disorder is painful and leaves most people feeling a lack of control. You want to help the person you love to admit that they have a real problem and deserve help, but they often don’t see their own situations clearly. At Ambrosia Treatment Center in Singer Island, Florida, we understand how addiction affects the whole family. Our goal is to help you spot the signs of addiction and find a solution for your loved one.
Addiction Affects the Whole Family
Drug and alcohol addiction does not happen in a vacuum. Addiction also doesn’t impact only the person who has become an addict. A substance use disorder affects the entire family, often creating rifts in relationships, breakups, and divorces. Family members lose the ability to communicate honestly with each other and end up feeling estranged from one another. Until the person dealing with addiction enters treatment, healing of the family unit cannot truly begin.
Treatment programs that include family programming set up everyone for success both during the duration of the program and after the person returns home. Parents, romantic partners, other family members, and close friends learn how to stop caretaking and making excuses for their loved ones. Any loved one who has been engaging in codependent behavior can learn how to remove themselves from that role. This helps foster a better sense of responsibility for everyone involved. Everybody learns how to communicate their needs, develop healthy boundaries, and respect the boundaries set by others.
Ambrosia Offers Help for Everyone in the Family
Ambrosia understands how vital it is for a person in recovery to have the support of their loved ones. While your loved one receives treatment from us, we help them understand how to heal family relationships. Our goal is to help them emerge as part of a stronger family unit. In addition, we provide free advice from our Family Wellness Counselors to loved ones and also provide a Family Meeting Finder that helps you find local help in your area.
