Drug addiction doesn’t just destroy the life of the addict—it also wreaks havoc on the entire family. Whether or not family members are living with the addict, everyone who interacts with them on a regular basis becomes completely absorbed in the problem over time. Their lives eventually become filled with small emergencies and traumatic events, anxiety grows and things that would seem strange or terrifying for others become the new normal. Addiction affects everyone involved, even from thousands of miles away.
Many families feel that sending their loved one to a detox program simply isn’t enough. Fortunately, with a specialized addiction program that focuses on healing the entire family, both the addict and his or her loved ones can receive professional guidance and counseling. This helps families get on board with recovery and provides the opportunity for them to work through their own pain as a result of their loved one’s addiction.
If you or a loved one is suffering with an addiction to drugs, it’s important that your entire family has the support they need to make it through the experience of addiction recovery together. At Wellness Center New Jersey, we strive to provide thorough, caring, and professional mental health treatment to patients as well as their family members in an outpatient addiction treatment program.
Our mental health experts understand that recovery from addiction is a process of “baby steps,” and that one of the keys to maintaining lasting sobriety after drug treatment programs is the process of creating a healthy family dynamic and a strong network of support.
