As a “family disease”, those who have been affected by a loved one’s addiction may take years to recover, as they rebuild and stabilize their lives, independent of what the addicted familyC member/friend does. Without question, it can seem overwhelming, but it helps to keep in mind that commitment to the recovery process is also a commitment to the overall well-being of the whole family. Active family engagement in the recovery process is essential if the relationships are to heal from the destructive impact of addiction. To move on in hope, families/friends need a variety of supports, information and coping skills. Family Matters is an education & support group for family & friends that have been impacted by someone’s alcohol, drug, gambling or other addictive behavior.
There are two primary goals of the group:
1. We will provide education & hope with ways to cope
2. We hope to support you & help you to not feel so alone by interacting with others in similar situations.
