Family member support is an essential component of our residential treatment programme. The support and on-going aftercare we provide for families is included in the cost of all placements.
The family support is private and confidential and integral to the overall programme of recovery for the person with the addiction problem.
We start to support families from the very first contact they have with us, to address any questions they may have about addiction, the behaviours of someone in addiction and to provide guidance to identify the best and most effective course of action for the whole family and the person in addiction.
Our programme of support and aftercare was designed by professionals who themselves have lived personal experience of addiction and who understand what is required to achieve a successful recovery.
"Recovery is all about change, so while your loved one is being supported through that process of change we believe it’s essential that families are also supported and we do that."
Our family education programme will enable you to understand addiction and help you to identify the most appropriate ways to deal with your loved one when they have completed their treatment.
We understand that addiction can destroy families and affects everyone close to the person including parents, siblings, partners, spouses and particularly any children involved who can suffer longer term impact on their mental health and wellbeing.
We also understand the stigma, isolation and the guilt that family members can carry associated with drug and alcohol addiction in the family.
We know it's difficult to open up and talk to anyone about the problems you are facing so we support you to explore your circumstances in a safe environment.
"Family members can sometimes feel helpless especially when someone they love is destroying their life. However, family members can have a positive effect if they receive the right support and guidance."
We have been supporting family members of people with addiction problems for over 10 years and we totally understand the issues it raises in families and what is required for families to rebuild their relationships and trust.
Our Family Support provides the information, education, awareness and ongoing aftercare to support families throughout their loved one’s treatment journey.
We also advise families on how to get additional support for themselves.
