3 Resources for Family Members With Addicted Loved Ones

3 Resources for Family Members With Addicted Loved Ones

Dealing With A Family Member Struggling With Addiction

When loved ones are addicted to drugs it can be very hard on the families and friends of the individual who is struggling with a drug or alcohol problem. Professionals who work in drug and alcohol treatment and recovery organizations have too many times seen an entire family severely affected by one addicted person. An addicted loved one may need help, but also may refuse help, which can be stressful for all involved. It is often very hard to push someone into addiction recovery, no matter how much the families of addicted individuals would like to try and take action. 

Addiction Treatment that
Just Works

Individualized treatment programs delivered in a comfortable, relaxed setting promote healing in your recovery journey.

At Resurgence, we have drug addiction treatment programs for many categories of substances, including alcohol abuse. We also offer addiction education for families and friends of loved ones dealing with an addict. Drug abuse can affect a person and their loved ones in many ways and we are here to help people struggling with addiction make a major change and enter the next chapter of their life. Call us today and let us start helping your friend or family member who is being negatively affected by substance use disorders.

Support for families of drug addicts is available. Substance users often downplay the signs of drug use you may have brought to their attention in an effort to try and get them to consider available treatment programs. At Resurgence, we have a lot of types of treatment to choose from and this makes it possible for us to help many substance abusers begin their addiction recovery. We also have a lot of resources for loved ones of addicts. No one should ever have to try and deal with drug and alcohol problems on their own. Neither should family members feel like they are alone in their struggle to help someone who needs meth treatment or opioid treatment or cocaine treatment or benzodiazepines treatment. At Resurgence, we are just one phone call away. 

3 Support Resources For Family

Parents, siblings, and children of alcoholics and drug addicts, including adult children, are often trying to find addiction resources and how they can positively promote addiction treatment to their family members in need. There are a lot of options when it comes to addiction resources for families, and they can all be useful to different family dynamics. Family involvement can often be a key component regarding someone agreeing to one or more treatment programs. Here are a few ideas for family members and friends to look into regarding a loved one struggling with substance abuse:

Organizations that provide support

Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Alanon family services all provide family members and friends with material on how to approach, communicate with, and address someone in their circle who has alcohol and other drug issues.

Family Programs

Family therapy can be a part of inpatient treatment or outpatient rehab in addition to individual therapy.  Family therapy has family members meet and have guided discussions about both the causes of a loved one’s addiction and how they are willing to support them during recovery. A loved one in recovery often needs support during treatment and well after, and all of this can be discussed during family programs. 

Addiction Intervention

An intervention that is guided by a professional counselor can be a big help in bringing to light how much someone’s addiction is affecting their family and friends. It’s important to not be accusatory and to follow the lead of the addiction intervention specialist so that you do not push the person away while you are trying to promote treatment and healing.
