Having an addicted loved one can cause a considerable amount of emotional turmoil within the family.
It often creates doubt, sadness, even frustration and anger. These struggles can often seem insurmountable. The road to sobriety is often long and difficult, but with help it is absolutely possible. Our mission is to prepare families for the common obstacles associated with early recovery, development of healthy boundaries, and the tools to respond to the natural struggles that occur in sobriety.
Although we focus primarily on the individual struggling with Substance Use Disorder, Midwest Recovery Centers acknowledges that addiction is a family disease and it takes a concerted effort by all persons involved to build a successful recovery process for the individual suffering. We have implemented specific components of family involvement to enhance each individual’s successful outcome of our treatment program. Along with weekly family contact from our clinical team, family members are encouraged to attend our monthly Family Night the first Wednesday of each month, family support group meetings such as Al-Anon or Nar-Anon, and be involved in the overall treatment process. When deemed appropriate, our clinical team will work with families to schedule family education and counseling sessions, as well as family visits and outings.
