Our family education is provided at a separate location away from the residential facility but in parallel to the residential rehab placements.
This education is really important so we can provide the whole family with 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 incredible effect in assisting them in their recovery."
The support and education we offer can help remove the feeling of isolation and give families the opportunity to ask questions about addiction, addiction treatment and recovery.
The sessions also enable families to explore their own circumstances in a safe place and provide them with the insight and skills to support themselves and their loved one’s sustained recovery when they leave our residential treatment centre.
The family education sessions include:
• Working Together
• What is Addiction
• Rehab Treatment Programme
• Aftercare and Recovery
Our sessions are delivered by people who have their own personal experience of family members in addiction and recovery.
The sessions will 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 sessions of the family education programme.
We give families information about the suggested support available for residents when they leave ESH Community, we outline what families can expect, what on-going Family Aftercare support we provide and how best families can support their loved ones in recovery.
