The importance of Family Guide after in-patient treatment
Do you have a loved one who is in recovery? Recovery from any addiction is difficult for the patient, but it can be especially difficult on families who struggle with how to help and be supportive after their loved one leaves in-patient treatment. Families with great success through this difficult time are the ones that have direct involvement, engagement and support with their loved one during recovery. Treatment centers may facilitate those initial recovery contacts and mental health appointments, but many families struggle with what to do next. The recovery process really begins after being discharged from a facility when the pressures of real life begin. Coping skills are tested and new ones must be created.
The months following in-patient treatment can be the most crucial. It is when emotions and motivation are at their highest. Families may have been told to attend Al-anon, Nar-anon or Families Anonymous. These meetings can be great but many drop out after only a few meetings when their loved one has some sobriety or success. What lies ahead can sometimes be a steep climb to success. Families oftentimes do not fully realize that they too need to be in recovery as they learn new behaviors and ways to support their loved one. It is a continual group effort. Short-term follow up care or no follow up care at all is not effective for the patient or the family. What is needed is long-term support and family care.
Family Guide is a continued care program that has been missing from traditional treatment programs. Family Guide focuses on getting the entire family into the recovery process. Families learn to embrace new, healthy habits with an effective family plan created by the entire family. Family guide is supportive with consistent actions for when your motivation and patience are growing thin. Effective treatment involves long-term solutions. Family Guide is exactly that. It focuses on visioning into the future while providing solutions for the present. Family Guide offers support for the family in case there is a breakdown during the recovery process. Patient success is higher when the family is involved in the recovery process. With Family Guide, recovery rates go up and relapse rates go down.
Family guide has created a successful structure for everyday families dealing with addiction. Because traditional treatments lack accountability and they do not involve entire families, they are sometimes not successful. Family Guide is the complete opposite. We offer full support to keep your loved one and family on track for recovery. Family Guide is the ultimate after-care package. Once family members see the positive progress their loved one is making, healthy communication increases. This helps families see the light at the end of the tunnel. No one should have to go through recovery alone. It can be incredibly isolating and miserable. Those with proper support will be most successful. Family Guide helps re-build those sometimes broken bridges between patients and their loved ones.
Family Guide will identify and manage negative emotions that are oftentimes triggers for patients. We will help develop positive coping skills and teach the family how to be supportive without being a crutch. Everyone in the family focuses on him or herself and is responsible for their own recovery while working as a family unit.
