Celebrating 5 Years of Helping Those Struggling with Addiction to Recover

Family Addiction Wellness

No matter who you call family, they, too, want to see you healthy, happy, and whole. We think they deserve the same

You may not remember what you said to a parent, partner, spouse, sibling, child, or friend while under the influence, but they remember how it made them feel. Addiction touches everyone. That’s why we offer family wellness, allowing everyone who matters a supportive forum to truly heal.

A Message to Parents of Addicted Children

Like most parents, you will do anything in your power to protect and comfort your children. However, communicating with them becomes harder and harder as they mature. For this reason, it is essential to talk to your kids about the risks of substance abuse early in their development. This is a critical and ongoing discussion. Using drugs and alcohol can devastate lives.

The truth is that, each year, millions of young adults and teens try alcohol, marijuana, or other drugs for the first time. Most of them won’t become addicted or end up in dire situations (such as wrecking their cars or serving time in jail, for example). Yet, a significant number of young people will experience problems, often with detrimental, life-altering consequences.

We’re here to tell you that you can prevent your children from becoming a statistic. Simply being involved in their everyday lives and being a positive example can show them how to stay free of addiction and its related troubles. Sit down with them and talk honestly and openly. However, it’s important that you practice what you preach.

Sadly, some children will develop a drug or alcohol addiction despite their parents’ best efforts to keep them safe. That does not indicate that the parent (or child) has failed. Helping an addicted child recover from drug or alcohol dependency is a tough challenge that many parents have to face in today’s world. But there is hope.

Family Wellness at Foundations

At Foundations Wellness Center, we understand that addiction is a family disease. When one family member goes through a crisis, it is felt by the entire family. The individual may feel scared, frustrated, and hopeless, but so do their concerned family members and friends.

Our treatment is focused on the addicted individual, but for the client to truly heal, the family needs to be involved as well. Family involvement and support in the healing process can significantly improve the chance of recovery.

The addiction’s devastating severity afflicts everyone, it just affects the individual differently than it would their parents, spouse, or child.

As such, while the client is enrolled in our treatment program, we actively encourage family members to participate via phone calls and scheduled visits so that they can be a part of the recovery process. This familial support system will also learn the best practices for keeping the client sober.

Within the program, families will also discover how to cope with and heal from the addiction’s devastating effects on them. Foundations’ family addiction treatment explores the disease of addiction and how it affects the entire family.

Through the family addiction program, we help families understand addiction and begin to identify the dynamics within the family that may contribute to ongoing addiction or hinder recovery. We do so through services geared toward overcoming addiction with the help of family members.
