Families & Addiction Recovery

Addiction runs deep and can leave a family in distress, proper rehab needs to address the importance of healing both the body and any strained relationships

This is the forward of an ebook that we did for a company I was a co founder of. Because some families we work with at the Raleigh House are so invested in their loved one’s recovery I thought I would share this.

“I know this whole experience you and your loved one are going through is tough and has life changing repercussions, and at times you may feel hopeless. Believe me when I say there are many people out there who have experienced something similar to what you are going through, myself included. I’ve been on both sides. I know you can make it through this and there is always light at the end of the tunnel no matter how bad it gets. You never have to stop loving your addict/alcoholic but you do have to start taking care of yourself and your emotions. Learn to recognize that your own reaction to all situations is yours, and only yours to deal with. In doing so, this will help you to be free of the pain you are experiencing. Letting go may be one of the best moves you can make, as well as tightening up the resources that could continue to allow the addict/alcoholic more ways to destroy themselves. The best gift you can give to an addict/alcoholic is to let them hit bottom faster and allow yourself to live your life.

“If you believe that you can make your life better then you WILL make your life better. And if your loved one wants to stop they WILL.”
