Care, support and information for families
ESH Community family support is provided at our central office location separately but in parallel to the residential rehab placements.
When your loved one has decided to address their substance misuse problem they have made a big decision to look at themselves and their issues.
Recovery is all about change, so while your loved one is being supported through that process of change we believe it’s essential that the families are also supported.
Our structured family education and awareness sessions enable the families to explore their own circumstances in a safe place while gaining the skills and insight to support themselves and their loved one’s sustained recovery when they leave the residential treatment centre.
The family sessions include:
- Working Together
- Drug and Alcohol Education
- What is Addiction
- Conflict Resolution and Feelings
- Self Care
Our sessions are delivered by people who have their own personal experience of coping with their family member in addiction. The sessions also give the family members a chance to ask questions about addiction, behaviours and aftercare for both the family and the person in recovery.
"When a family member or friend is able and confident to provide the correct support and encouragement to an addict or alcoholic it can have a significant and incredible effect in assisting in them in their recovery."
