One of the most common questions we get is “What makes The Raleigh House more effective than other substance abuse centers?”
The short answer is that we look at addiction as being more than just using drugs or alcohol. We have a holistic treatment program that also focuses on family education, emotional healing, and relapse prevention.
To help you understand why this approach is more effective, we will be writing a series of blog posts on each topic. Today, we’ll explain how family support can lead to successful substance abuse recovery.
Why Is Family Education Important?
Addiction can be difficult to understand as a family member. You may not realize it, but your actions can make all the difference when it comes to helping a loved one stay clean.
Focusing on family education helps with the recovery process in many ways:
- Relapse prevention.When a recovering addict improves their relationships with their loved ones and can turn to them for support, facing the real world is a lot less frightening. Having a support system can lessen the chances of a relapse.
- Strengthened support.Understanding how to support a recovering addict without enabling them. The less enabling they get, the better.
- Relationship mending.Addiction causes turmoil within relationships. It is important that an addict and their loved ones get the chance to repair relationships during treatment.
