Why Family Involvement is Essential
Family involvement can also help your loved stay in treatment. Researchers have found that most individuals addicted to drugs or alcohol need at least three months in treatment to be able to reduce or stop their substance use. Your loved one may be tempted to leave treatment prematurely, but your family involvement is essential to ensuring they remain in treatment for an adequate amount of time.
Engagement is key. Engagement between the individual who is addicted and the treatment program and between the individual and the family can make a difference in the success of addiction recovery. Behavioral therapies can include individual and family-involved counseling, addressing the individual’s motivation to change, building skills to resist substance use, improving problem-solving skills, and facilitating better relationships with family members. Participation in these therapy sessions can help the individual maintain their abstinence.
In addition, it is critical to realize that your loved one’s addiction to drugs or alcohol is not your fault. Family-involved therapy can help you realize the underlying causes of your loved one’s addiction, another key factor in successful recovery for everyone.
Addiction is a chronic disease and needs to be treated as such.
What Family Members Need to Unlearn
Part of the importance of family involvement in addiction recovery is also to help your family members understand what they may need to unlearn. Living with an individual who is addicted to drugs or alcohol can be stressful. You may worry that their addiction is your fault. You may also be in constant fear of your loved one’s behavior. You may also engage in enabling behaviors that end up hurting you and your loved one more than helping.
When you enable your loved one, you reach out in an effort to help them, often by trying to rescue them from the consequences of their behavior. You may offer them a place to stay, give them money to pay their bills, make excuses for them with a boss or at school, and even put-up bail money for them if necessary. However, these enabling behaviors reduce the impact of their behavior and ends up prolonging their active addiction. Enabling your loved one can diminish your self-esteem as well as your resources.
