How Families Can Support Loved Ones After Addiction Treatment

The Most Effective Ways Families Can Support Their Loved Ones in Recovery

Do you know that family members and loved ones can have an incredible impact on the sobriety of a person that is struggling with addiction? When a person knows that they have the love and support of their family members, they may feel extra encouragement to do what they need to do to get sober so that they can spend more time with their family members and rebuild relationships that may have been lost as a result of their addiction.

Recognizing the Signs of Recovery

Although it may feel easy to exclusively focus on what a loved one did during the time that they were in active addiction, it’s critical to take a closer look at how families can support loves ones after addiction treatment and recognize signs that their family member is taking steps toward living a better and healthier life. Here are some ways that you can recognize the signs of recovery:

  • Interest in talking about possible options for sobriety
  • Attending local 12-step meetings
  • Participating in different forms of therapy

When your loved one comes to our facility, we will always encourage family members to take part in family therapy as a way to help you and your family to heal from the detrimental impact that addiction may have had on the lives of every family member.

Recognizing the Early Symptoms of Relapse

It’s just as important that family members also be conscious of possible signs of relapse that could potentially destroy any progress that that person has made in their overall recovery. Here are some early symptoms of relapse:

  • Secretiveness
  • Erratic behavior
  • Money issues
  • Professional problems

Remember, if you suspect that your loved one may have relapsed, we recommend that you try to remain calm and reach out for help from trustworthy and reliable resources.

How After Care and Staying Involved Can Set Your Loved One Up for Success

We always recommend that our clients take full advantage of an after-care program as part of their relapse prevention plan. Taking this step can certainly set you up for success in the sense that you will be able to build on the tools that you learned during your initial treatment program. Also, we strongly encourage family members to continue to remain involved in the lives and recovery journey of their loved ones. It’s important to remember that although family members have no control over whether or not a person remains sober, their support could make a world of difference when it comes to their loved one staying focused on their overall recovery journey.

What to Do if a Relapse Occurs

Many people that struggle with addiction as well as some family members may see relapse as a reason to give up on any potential of long-term recovery. While it’s understandable that a relapse may be embarrassing, it doesn’t mean that you will never be able to achieve lifelong sobriety. The first thing that should be done is to reach out to Resurgence Behavioral Health and provide our team with information as to what has taken place. From there, our team can work with you to develop a plan for treatment. Whether that entails working through a detox program, coming to our facility for inpatient treatment, or putting together a plan for outpatient treatment around your current schedule, our team can help you to work through your addiction and explain how families can support loved ones in recovery.
