The family of the addict or alcoholic is often in as much pain as the client themselves. With all of the muck and mire that has gone on to finally bring about the recovery process, there’s no telling what may be going on within each family member. Then add in any potential ongoing personal or group issues that may have existed long before addiction was even a part of the picture, and you can easily see the critical need for emotional healing.
Keep in mind that our many staff professionals have all been personally affected by chemical dependency in one way or another. Whether in recovery themselves or on the other side with respect to a loved one that has gone through the struggles, we have seen every angle and felt varied emotions. We know what you’re going through and we have designed a program aimed at creating a whole new family paradigm!
