A great way to help a loved one recover from their addiction is by showing your support. Victory Bay offers a variety of family programs and scheduled events so family membercs can be involved in their loved one’s recovery process and support them from start to finish. These events help clients know they are loved and supported through their recovery journey. Also, they provide a great way for the whole family to stay close during this difficult time.
Educating Your Family on Addiction
It is important for families to first understand what addiction is and the process their loved one is going through to treat it. By educating families, they are better equipped to support clients during the recovery process. Some topics Victory Bay helps to explain include:
- What is addiction?
- How is addiction treated?
- What is a relapse?
- How can I help an addict?
- What should I do in case of emergencies?
When families are educated about addiction, they can better understand how to support clients while they recover.
Family Therapy Program
A family therapy program can also be a beneficial way to bring families closer together and get more involved during recovery. Family therapy is especially helpful in dealing with feelings loved ones may have about addiction. It can also help resolve any underlying issues between clients and their family members that may be a contributing factor in their addiction. This therapy can include techniques such as:
It is important to establish good communication with family members to help clients work through recovery.
Family Events at Victory Bay
We often have social events at our facility for family to enjoy time together. These family events let clients bond with family members through normal everyday activities such as barbeques, game nights, and more. This allows clients to be with their families in normal, fun settings while still being in recovery.
