When an individual struggles with a substance use disorder, family and friends often wonder how addiction became the focus of the relationship. Those close to the individual may feel that the relationship has been compromised by anxiety and frustrations. Family members may experience complex emotions, relationship damage, and negative consequences connected to their loved one’s substance use. Others may experience fear, a sense of obligation, or guilt over the mounting impact of addiction on the family. At any level, addiction robs the family of health, trust, and connection. And soon, family members find themselves wondering: “How did I get here, and what happens next?”
This seminar will assist family members in addressing these questions and focus on identifying dynamics within the family that may contribute to the progression of their loved one’s disease. Through education and supportive discussion, participants will gain a new outlook about how to best cope with the challenges of active addiction and early recovery in their homes, lives, and relationships.
