Addiction is stressful and confusing for everyone involved. You may experience a wide range of emotions as the family member of someone who suffers from addiction.
One moment you feel like you want to help the person. The next moment you feel angry or resentful. You may feel guilty a lot of the time and ask yourself what you could have done to prevent the addiction. The truth is that it is not your fault, and it is not too late.
Help is available to you and your loved ones. The first step to helping your addicted family member recover is to help yourself and understand the addiction. Educate yourself, take care of your emotional and physical health, and never hesitate to remove yourself from unsafe conditions.
We understand that addicts are not the only ones affected by their addiction. We are here to help support you and guide you through the recovery process, so you can get your loved one the help they need in a compassionate and safe environment.
At Tranquil Shores, we take family members into account. We consider how important you are to our client’s well-being, and we understand what you are going through. Not only do we help our clients with custom, individualized treatment plans, but we also recognize the importance of family involvement in the recovery process.
Once a week, we offer family group meetings to inform families about the recovery process and teach them how to be supportive throughout it in a healthy way. Also, we hold family sessions where we privately address issues once a month.
Recovery is not something someone does alone. It also takes time and work. However, addiction is treatable, and there is hope. At Tranquil Shores, you and your family member are not another statistic. We value you as individuals and work with you to reach your goals with care, attention and understanding.
