The loved ones of those with addiction are greatly impacted. Many family members and close friends experience a “roller coaster” of emotions, including anxiety, depression, anger and more. Families also tend to adapt their roles within the family structure to accommodate the erratic behavior of the person with the addiction. After treatment, there is a readjustment period as the family unit begins to heal together. At Continuum, we make sure our clients and their families are prepared to support each other during this transition and beyond. To do so, we offer:
Families meet with a therapist to identify strengths and work on weaknesses to promote healthy family relationships.
Clients meet along with their families and a counselor to discuss their issues and come up with constructive solutions. Family groups also offer peer support.
