Family-focused Recovery: Women supporting Recovery 
Addiction sucks!.

Addiction is not only a terrible experience for the person addicted who’s struggling to maintain recovery but also for the family as well. 

 

It can easily be argued that it’s the family that gets the brunt of it all.

 

However, very little attention is given to the home environment. But, that’s where it starts and where ultimately the battle against addiction will either be lost or won.

 

This doesn’t mean the family is to blame or to be held responsible.

 

But this does mean that family recovery is just as important as treatment for the addicted person to maintain recovery harmoniously.

 

Why is family recovery important?  

 

**Treatment without support is much like washing your hands and wiping them on the ground. 

 

Because it all starts at home. 

 

From the family struggling to convey that there is a problem, I can’t tell you how often I’ve heard, “if only I had known sooner, Judy”.

 

To the family spending all their money and losing everything trying to persuade the addicted person to remain longer in treatment facilities and support her recovery efforts.  

 

Only to discover how true Al-anon 3Cs ring:

-There’s no cure

-You cannot control it

-You did not cause it 

 

Unfortunately, many people will have:

 

-Witnessed and involved in multiple overdoses. 

 

-experience first hand the vast majority of addictive behaviors (lying, stealing, infidelity, etc.)

 

-Unsuccessfully attempted to implement and enforce boundaries.

 

And even may have reached a point where they are ‘kicking’ their addicted loved one out of the home before that becomes crystal clear.

 

Sadly, this process can take years. 

 

The longer the family waits to get help, the worse things get. 

 

It is proven that when the family is also focusing on recovery alongside their addicted loved one, there are a lot fewer relapses and recovery can be maintained for a longer period over time. 

 

“Nothing changes without change”-Unknown.

 

Why focus on family recovery?

  • You can consciously help your addicted loved one main recovery.

  • You gain awareness. Awareness is everything: when you become aware of certain signs/behaviors/common triggers you become informed to make more impactful decisions.
