Family Rehab: Helping Those Affected by Drug and Alcohol Addiction

At BetterAddictionCare, we work with a nationwide network of the top addiction recovery centers in the country to match patients with an individualized treatment program to fit their needs. But addicts aren’t the only ones whose lives can be torn apart by addiction: Their parents, siblings, spouses, or children experience their own struggles. To address the needs of both yourself and those closest to you, a family rehab could be the best option for you. And at BetterAddictionCare, our highly trained staff of professional counselors is standing by to work closely with you and find the treatment center that will give you the best chances of a successful recovery. With years of combined experience, we are confident that we can find the right family rehab center for you.

Why Should I Choose Family Rehab?

Substance abuse affects the entire family, which is why family members can play a key role in the rehabilitation of patients. Upon entering family rehab centers, family members can learn more about the treatment and recovery process, learn ways to help the patient, participate in recovery, and promise to encourage the patient on their journey to sobriety. When family members are on board with recovery, it helps the patient feel strong and confident and strengthens the desire to get sober. After completing an inpatient program, it is important for the patient to return home to a strong support system, and when family members participate in the rehabilitation process, they have a better idea of what to expect when their loved one returns home. This increases the chance for a successful recovery.

The Benefits of Family Rehab

Family rehab centers can also be the right choice for single parents of young children. At some family rehabs, you can bring your children with you, and they can receive the counseling they might need as well as take part in fun activities while their parent is in therapy sessions. For some people, the idea of being separated from their children during treatment can keep them from getting the help they need, but with help from a family rehab program, addicted parents can get sober and become stronger, healthier role models for their children.
