Home » Services » Family Therapy

Drug addiction and alcoholism is a disease that affects the entire family. When one member of a family suffers, oftentimes the entire family suffers. In some instances, loved ones who struggle with addiction may begin to engage in covert or otherwise questionable behaviors in order to continue their drug or alcohol abuse, often called enabling.

Some of these enabling behaviors can include:

  • Lying
  • Covering up for your loved one’s whereabouts
  • Loaning them money
  • Bailing them out of jail or providing legal support
  • Continuing to provide treatment over and over again

The effects of addiction aren’t limited to the addicted person, and the causes of substance abuse can be varied and complex – family issues can contribute to and perpetuate the illness of addiction. In fact, addiction is sometimes referred to as a “family disease.” Successful treatment, therefore, often incorporates the family of the person struggling with addiction.

Family Addiction Services

Statistics show that the children of individuals who suffer from addiction are more likely to suffer from behavioral problems and potential genetic predispositions that render them more vulnerable to developing addictions as well.

Over time, the destructive influence of drug use within a family can cause family members to feel helpless. The truth is, however, that families are not helpless when it comes to protecting themselves and their loved one who is struggling with addiction.

One of the most challenging roles to be played in an addict or alcoholic’s life is to be the interventionist, to confront the addict and ask him to seek help. This responsibility almost always falls on family members. Nobody admits mistakes. Denial is always what makes the process difficult. The first intervention team is always the family of the patient. But when all efforts fail, it is crucial to seek help from a professional or addiction treatment facility. Hathaway Recovery offers the following support services for families:

Addiction Education

If you find that your loved one is struggling with addiction issues, one of the first steps you can take is to educate yourself about the processes that play into addiction development, and ways that it can be treated. At Hathaway Recovery, we believe that addiction is a family disease. We include a family care component focused on addiction education. We believe the disease of addiction affects each family member at the same level as it does the individual and therefore, we treat the whole family system.

Addiction Interventions

An intervention is a process by which family and friends deliberately confront individuals struggling with addiction about the damage their addiction is doing to both them and the people they love. With the help of a professional interventionist, individuals may begin to see what their addiction is costing them – in terms of relationships, finances, and personal health.

Interventions serve to introduce “rock bottom” to your loved one. Rather than waiting around and risking serious injury or death as a result of your loved one’s addiction, interventions help your family take back some control. They confront individuals with the dangers of addiction while also offering solutions to get out of addiction. Don’t take a control in your hands call us and we will come to you and will hear you.

Emotional Support Guidance

Another aspect of family involvement in addiction treatment includes providing emotional support guidance. It can be scary navigating treatment, and even scary for loved ones who are unsure what to expect. Many times, those in recovery who feel alone will succumb to their cravings and go against their own desires to get well. This is due to the changes that occur in the brain as the body becomes dependent on a substance. Addiction can even lead individuals to continue their use of drugs and alcohol even in the face of negative consequences. At Hathaway Recovery, our staff provides emotional support guidance for families on how to navigate support their loved one in early sobriety.
