While addiction obviously affects you, it also impacts your family tremendously. If appropriate, family support can have a positive impact on recovery. Serenity Lodge encourages family support when clinically appropriate, in addition to individual and group therapy.
Family support addresses addiction in two ways. First, it focuses on family issues your addiction may have caused. Your addiction may have led to them having feelings of resentment. Family support fosters a stronger, healthier relationship going forward.
Secondly, families may have unknowingly enabled your use during your active addiction. Maybe they provided financial support. Maybe they kept your addiction a secret out of embarrassment. Family support can help family members overcome co-dependent behaviors and contribute to your recovery.
Family visitation is approved when clinically appropriate. Family support sessions are also available and encouraged when appropriate. This way, your family can stay actively involved in your recovery and even chart your progress.
