How Does Addiction Impact Family?
Addiction is a family disease, in that, it affects everyone connected to the person struggling. When someone you love is addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, their “problem” becomes yours. Most members directly impacted by a loved one using or abusing substances begin to face their own challenges, insecurities and fears. Watching someone you love battle with addiction takes a toll and can leave you feeling helpless and alone. As much as they need treatment to stay abstinent, the family also needs healing from hurts and resentments.
How Does Family Recovery Coaching Help?
Family Recovery Coaching is all about being guided to solution-based living by uncovering unhealthy habits and responses to better support your loved one and most importantly, care for yourself. Coaching will provide education, tools and encouragement to help regain a healthy family unit.
When Should You Seek A Family Coach?
If you have someone you love currently in the grips of their disease and you don’t know what is left to do, or maybe they are finally on their recovery journey and you are still battling your own pain and worries, Family Recovery Coaching can help in whatever your current stage. Recovery is a process that should never be done alone.
The disease of addiction is self-centered and causes much chaos which requires a lot of attention. Because of this, many family members revolve their lives around their loved one and forget to take care of themselves. Without your own strength, you cannot properly show up and tend to matters that need you the most. Take this step for yourself, take a step towards your own freedom and serenity, you deserve it.
