A family addiction awareness session is offered to families in parallel to the residential rehab placements.
It is really important that we provide family addiction support so families have a better understanding and awareness of addiction which also then gives the person with the addiction problem the best possible chance of a successful on-going recovery.
"When a family member or friend is able and confident to provide the correct support and encouragement to an addict or alcoholic it can have a significant and positive effect in assisting them in their recovery."
The awareness session can help remove the feeling of isolation and give family members the opportunity to ask questions about addiction, addiction treatment and recovery.
Our family addiction support can also help families to explore their own circumstances and give them insight and awareness to support themselves and their loved one’s sustained recovery when they leave our residential addiction rehab.
A family session can cover:-
• providing a better understanding of addiction
• an overview of the rehab treatment programme
• how to work with the loved one during their aftercare and recovery
The family session can address any questions about addiction, addictive behaviours and also suggest ways to approach aftercare and sustained recovery for the benefit of both the family members and the person in recovery.
Aftercare for residents and for the families is so important and it's one of the key aspects we discuss in the family sessions.
We give families information about the suggested additional support available for residents when they leave ESH Community, we outline what families can expect, what on-going family addiction support and aftercare we provide and how best families can support their loved ones in recovery.
Our family addiction support is provided by people who have their own personal experience addiction and recovery in families.
