Addiction does not just affect the person struggling with substance use disorder. It also affects those who love and care for them. This is why family involvement is so important in addiction treatment. The family program at Evoke Wellness at Miramar helps families understand addiction and how it affects their loved one battling it. They will also learn how to best support their loved one during treatment and during their recovery.
If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, please contact Evoke Wellness at Miramar today at 866.931.9312 to learn more about our family program. We can help you heal your relationship and start down the path to recovery.
The Three C's Of Addiction
Knowing the “three C’s” of addiction is one of the most important lessons you can learn when dealing with a person battling addiction. These three C’s not only apply to the individual themselves but also to their family members. The first “C” is you did not cause it. The individual who is actively using substances can blame their addiction on you all they want, but it’s important for you to know you are not the cause of their addiction. The second “C” is you cannot control it. No matter how hard you try, you can’t control a person struggling with addiction, and you can’t stop them either. The third and final “C” is you cannot cure addiction. Some people will say there is a cure, but there isn’t. Addiction is a disease. It can be successfully treated, but as is the case with diabetes or cancer, there is no cure.
That said, there are several reasons professional addiction treatment is a necessary part of getting on the road to recovery. This type of treatment can provide a level of care and support that family members simply cannot. This is not to say that families should not be involved in the treatment process—quite the opposite—but rather that they should not try to go it alone. Professional addiction treatment providers like the ones at Evoke Wellness at Miramar have the knowledge and experience to help your loved one get through detoxification safely and effectively.
The Benefits of Family Programs
Those who suffer from addiction get a significant boost in morale when their families and friends are supportive and part of their recovery process. This is why our family programs are invaluable. We teach families about the disease of addiction and how to identify and stop enabling and codependent behaviors so that both the individual struggling with addiction and their family can begin rebuilding a healthy relationship.
Family programs help break the stigma of addiction and mental illness and enable all involved to work through the chaos of addiction. Our program helps families gain a better understanding and better ability to empathize with the individual who is suffering. It improves listening and communication skills, changes negative interaction patterns, teaches healthy coping skills, enhances problem-solving skills, helps everyone involved set healthy boundaries, and improves conflict-resolution abilities.
If you're ready to start your journey to recovery, we're here to help.
Benefits Of Family Therapy
Addiction can wreak havoc on a family. Once a suffering addict decides to go to treatment, family therapy is a critical component of their recovery. Family therapy helps decrease the risk of relapse and repair and rebuild trusting relationships. Family therapy also dramatically improves communication between the addict and each family member.
Some of the specific benefits of family therapy include:
- Increased empathy from family members
- Improved communication within the family
- Enhanced problem-solving skills
- Healthier coping mechanisms for stress and conflict
- Greater insight into the addict’s behaviors and thought patterns
- Stronger relationships built on trust and respect
