Family Programs at Banyan Mass
Addiction can tear a person’s life apart, but unfortunately it isn’t just the addict who suffers. Many families can become broken and damaged from a member’s substance abuse problems, but a program for the families of addicts can help start the healing process for all.
The Connection Between Addiction & Family
Addiction is dangerous for families. Addicts may lie, break promises, betray trust, and push their loved ones away. Especially after an extended amount of time, addiction can lead to damaged and broken relationships. Loving familial bonds may be replaced by contentious and toxic relationships that hurt everyone involved.
Addiction can also affect family dynamics. When one or more family members has a substance abuse problem, the other family members are forced to react. Some may distance themselves, leading to rifts in the unity of the family, whereas others may unknowingly enable their loved one’s addiction. Neither dynamic is healthy, and both can lead to lasting damage within the family.
Help for Families of Addicts
Although your loved one may be in our Boston PHP getting help for themselves, you and your family still need to heal as well. While your loved one getting sober is a start, chances are your family has been badly damaged from the substance abuse problem and needs help. At Banyan Treatment Centers Massachusetts, we want to help your family feel whole again. Our family program for addiction offers help for family members of drug addicts and alcoholics.
Along with betraying trust, many addicts may push their loved ones away. This can be for several reasons, but it leaves their family feeling cast to the side. Our family program includes group therapy for family members of addicts where the family can confront their loved one in a controlled environment. A trained therapist will lead the group to ensure that the conversation is constructive and doesn’t get out of hand, but it gives the family the opportunity to speak out. This type of group therapy allows everyone to touch on how their loved one’s addiction has affected them and feel heard. Together, the family will be able to lay everything out on the table so that they can start to work through these problems and move forward.
Our family program for addiction isn’t just about counseling for family members of drug addicts and alcoholics; it is also about education. Many family members struggle to understand their loved one’s addiction. Their lack of knowledge on the topic can not only lead to frustration on their end, but can also lead their loved one feeling ostracized. In order to help both parties, our family program will educate family members on addiction as well as how to move forward now that their loved one is in inpatient or outpatient treatment and sober.
At our drug rehab center in Massachusetts, we also understand that family doesn’t have to mean only blood relatives. Our program is meant to help families of addicts as well as close friends who have been greatly affected by their loved one’s addiction and could be an integral part in the recovery process. Your family shouldn’t suffer any longer. Contact us today to get started.
