Drug addiction affects every member of the family. Whether you are suffering from addiction or you have witnessed a family member suffering from addiction, the impact is the same. Addiction can create a heavily chaotic and destructive environment in which each member of the family is affected in their own way. Regardless of how bad things get at home, however, there is always a healthy way out. Victory Bay offers family support meetings for both addicted persons and their families.
Victory Bay can help you deal with a wide range of addictions, as well as how to work together to provide support for both the addicted person and each other. We provide an array of treatments that allow each member of the family to grow and heal in their own way. We also provide resources for support groups that meet for families at our New Jersey outpatient rehab center. To find out more about our family support meetings in South Jersey, contact Victory Bay today.
Why Are Support Groups Important?
The most important reason why support groups are important is that every member of the family is affected by substance abuse differently. Teenagers may handle it differently than adults. Likewise, a spouse may be affected differently by addiction than a parent. Each type of addiction presents its own set of challenges. Many times family members are not equipped to handle the fallout from addiction. Eventually, someone in the family will take a drastic measure to deal with the problem.
A support group can offer encouragement, answers, and help reveal pain and other emotions that are going on inside the family member. A support group can also provide an avenue for someone to share their feelings or get support if they feel like they cannot get it from somewhere else.
A family can create a pattern of codependency with the addicted person either collectively or individually. These patterns can be as destructive as the addiction. Even worse, these patterns can be difficult to detect because the members may not even realize they are creating them. A support group can help family members discover these patterns because they can identify with other people in the group who have done the same thing.

Meeting with a Victory Bay Recovery Specialists
It is also important for the family to spend time with a Victory Bay therapist who is treating the addicted member. We can gather information from all members collectively or individually to get a better idea of how the addiction is affecting everyone. We can discuss treatment options, intervention options, and which direction we should go from this point.
Our goal is for the entire family to heal — not just the person suffering from the addiction. We want your family members to grow together and experience healing as the addicted member is beginning their road to recovery.
