Admissions For Families
Families are a crucial component in helping an addicted individual seek clinical help and complete their rehab successfully.
A person fighting addiction is likely dealing with a wide range of issues. As a family member, your support can help your loved one get back on the track toward a successful life. Often, family members can become frustrated because they lack an understanding of what is really going on with the addicted person. Our services help families to understand why it is so difficult for addicts to simply quit. We also help them to understand why the “right” way to communicate with their loved one is so important for that person’s long-term recovery.
What Families Can Expect
Whether admission is for yourself, or a family member, you can expect an entirely dedicated effort to help the addicted person overcome their addiction or mental illness. Treatments are proven and trusted, and many people benefit from the help they receive during treatments. We provide treatments that will help ensure that a person remains sober for the rest of their life.
Family members play an extremely important role in the detox process. The goal is for family members to take responsibility for any damage they may have caused, and to assist the addicted person going forward. It is possible that certain family members will need to change their behavior more than others. Depending on the severity of the addicted person, family members and the therapist will set goals to discuss how long they think therapy sessions will last. Of course, there may be family members who refuse to attend.
What to Bring
While in detox, we prefer that patients do not bring anything that will distract from their treatment. A workable list of what to bring can include personal identification (driver’s license and Social Security card, insurance information), jackets, pants, warmup suits, sweatshirts, and things that will keep you cozy at night. Undergarment and socks are a given, along with a bath robe and slippers. Curling iron, hair dryer, and a travel iron are also on the list of items the patient can bring.
As a family member, it is important that you remain well-informed about the process that your loved one will endure. You support can help speed a person’s recovery, or slow it down. There are times when an uninformed relative may even bring the addicted person’s recovery to a screeching halt. We place a great deal of emphasis on preparing the family for their loved one’s rehab. Family ties can be broken and strained during addiction periods. They need be strengthened and not weakened further. The family program has proven essential for the addicted person’s recovery process.
Family Program Sign-Up
When families sign up for our program, they are helping their loved one to make it through their detox program successfully. Family members are invited to the program through permission of the addicted person. There, they will gain a number of insights and skills to help our patient succeed. We do this so that patients can receive the best treatment solutions possible. Our goal is for the patient to gain complete recovery.
Intervening is what substance abuse treatment is all about. Once drugs or alcohol take control of a person’s life, their perception of things will change. Even their own perceptions about their addiction become altered. They believe their problem can actually be managed by the alcohol or drugs they consume. They may even challenge the idea of rehab. Then, it can be a challenge for their loved ones or friends to convince them that rehab is the best solution. An altered mind is in dire need of help.
Co-Dependency Treatment Program
Anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol is usually dealing with a wide range of issues. There is also a strong possibility that family members, some or perhaps all, have reached their breaking point with the addict. Relationships may be ruined past the point of no return without professional help. There is also likely to be some form of co-dependency involved. If so, it can be a tough pattern for the co-dependent to break. It may already be at a point where the addict has negatively affected the lives of people who cannot seem to bring themselves to let go and demand that the addict seek help.
