Addiction is a family disease. The wreckage that an addict causes often leaves a family traumatized and resentful.  As part of our family therapy program at Victory Bay, we strongly recommend family members educate themselves about the disease of addiction and learn how best to provide for their loved ones.

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 members 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.

When families are educated about addiction, they can better understand how to support clients while they recover.

Some topics Victory Bay helps to explain include:

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 Support Meetings

Al-Anon Meetings

Al-Anon is a support group comprised of people who share their experience strength and hope with one another pertaining to a loved one who is suffering from alcoholism.

This group is an anonymous 12-step program that helps families to overcome grief and learn not to enable their loved one who is suffering from the disease of alcoholism.

Alateen Meetings

Alateen meetings are similar to Al-Anon meetings and are often even held at the same time and location. However, these meetings are only open to teenagers.

Nar-Anon Meetings

The Nar-Anon Family Groups is primarily for those who know or have known a feeling of desperation concerning the addiction problem of someone very near to you.

We have traveled that unhappy road too and found the answer with serenity and peace of mind.

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.
