Families will frequently describe their experience of a loved one’s substance use disorder as an emotional roller coaster. It is a long ride with good days, bad days and lots of unexpected twists and turns. The family experience starts when substance abuse is first suspected and continuously changes with the impact of active addiction, periods of sobriety, relapses, treatment episodes and recovery. This interactive presentation will review the stages of addiction and recovery from a family perspective. It will explain complicated issues related to communication, enabling, boundaries and relapse behaviors as they occur at various points within the continuum of active addiction through recovery. Techniques to communicate effectively, to set healthy boundaries and to practice self-care will be provided. Participants will explore the distinction between controlling behaviors and healthy boundaries, the difference of emotional reactions and effective communication, and the gamut of relapse and recovery-based behaviors.
