Family Program at Banyan Heartland
Addiction affects more than just the individual. Their loved ones may suffer as they watched a beloved friend, child, or sibling struggle with drug or alcohol abuse. Addiction is a progressive disease that can affect every area of a person’s life as well as how they behave towards their loved ones. Long-term substance abuse often results in physical dependence that requires comprehensive addiction treatment. While it’s important for the individual to receive drug or alcohol addiction treatment, it’s important to not neglect their loved ones. The family program at Banyan Heartland offers assistance, support, and resources for loved ones of people with drug and alcohol addictions.
The Importance of Programs For Families Of Addicts
There are programs for families of drug addicts and alcoholics that offer them therapy, resources, and simply a safe place where they can recover from the impact their loved one’s addiction has on them. Many of these family members personally dealt with the aftermath of their loved one’s addiction. Devoted family members and friends struggled with the role of caregiver and tried their hardest to care for the individual during tough times. This isn’t an easy task and often comes with a lot of hardship.
Drugs and alcohol can warp a person’s mind to the point where they act differently with the people they love. They may lie and steal from their closest friends and family members just to get their fix. As a person on the receiving end of all this pain, it can be difficult to forgive the addict and rebuild a broken relationship. That’s where our family assistance program comes in. Our family program is built on the idea that a person’s addiction also affects the people they’re connected to. The effects of addiction on loved ones include broken relationships, loss of trust, financial problems, and more. We know that as our patients recover from substance abuse, they’ll need a solid support system. But, we also know that it’s equally as important to offer their support system the same level of care given to the addict.
Family Program for Addiction in Gilman, Illinois
Families play a key role in intervening and preventing drug and alcohol abuse in their members. They can do this by emphasizing the risks and/or encouraging the person to get help. Our family program is only one of our several addiction therapies in Gilman. This program incorporates individual and group therapy sessions, addiction education, and sessions with the addict to promote healing. Family programs for drug addiction and alcoholism like the one at our addiction treatment center in Gilman offer addicts and their loved ones a safe and controlled environment where they can rebuild their relationship. We know that family drama and hurt can cause a lot of tension and lead to hurtful words and actions. By creating a program specifically designed for addressing these issues, we can mitigate the chances of drama and hurtful words from getting in the way of genuine healing.
Even after the family completes our program, we continue to offer support and check in on them throughout the first year after completion. We check in with you via call, text message, and email to ensure the overall recovery process within the family dynamic is going smoothly and to offer support if it’s not.
