Your family is a part of your addiction because it always affects them either physically or emotionally. By choosing to seek help for your addiction, you can begin to heal your relationships with family members as they also learn about your recovery. Treatment centers in Florida are here to help you take back control of your life and live well.
Family and Recovery
When a person struggles with an addiction to alcohol or drugs, the disease of addiction can affect everyone surrounding that person. Family and friends often change their behaviors around the person, becoming enablers, distancing themselves, or falling into denial about their loved one’s illness. The family is also deeply involved in the struggle with addiction, which means it is important for them to become involved in recovery. This is not just about supporting the individual overcoming the addiction, but about creating a healthy environment for everyone affected by the disease.
By going to treatment for your addiction you are choosing to repair your relationship with your family and include them in the process. The family’s involvement in recovery can help the entire group understand how dynamics contribute to triggers and how these need to change. There will be a better understanding of the importance of sobriety and how the whole family together can encourage that.
