Caron President & CEO Brad Sorte discusses the importance of families in recovery sharing their stories as part of the healing process in The Philadelphia Inquirer's story on opioid addiction, For families of people in addiction, telling their stories can be a part of the healing process: Addiction treatment providers around the region say involving families in a patient’s treatment can also help the family unit recover.
As an advocate for family treatment, Brad weighed in on the importance of helping families understand that addiction is a chronic disease, not a moral failing, and setting healthy boundaries.
Family work impacted Brad during his own experience in early recovery, and helped influence his choice to later become a therapist in Caron Florida where he continued to grow his career.
For me, it’s been really important to work with families, because someone had the courage to do that for me.
