Family Support

Support, education and information for families

Family member support is an essential and integral component of our service which is included in the cost of placements.

For our longer term placements we provide a structured programme of education for the families of our residents. This support is really important so we can give the whole family a better understanding and awareness of addiction which also then gives the person with the addiction problem the best possible chance of a successful recovery when leaving ESH Community.

Family support is provided at a separate location away from the residential facility in parallel to the residential rehab placements.

When your loved one has decided to address their substance misuse problem they have made a big decision to look at themselves and their issues. 

Recovery is all about change, so while your loved one is being supported through that process of change we believe it’s essential that the families are also supported. 

Our family education and awareness programme enables the families to explore their own circumstances in a safe place. The sessions give family members the insight and skills to support themselves and their loved one’s sustained recovery when they leave our residential treatment centre.

The family 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.

"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."
