Addiction to drugs or alcohol is often the result of feelings of loneliness and isolation. These feelings may or may not be related to family relationships. Regardless, family relationships are an important source of connection and strength for those seeking recovery.

Getting to the root causes of an addiction can take time and patience. People often don’t know for themselves exactly what has driven them into dependence on drugs or alcohol. Working together with family members and addiction specialists can provide crucial support. As a result, people can learn to naturally grow out of their addiction.

If you or a loved one is dealing with an alcohol or drug addiction, there’s no need to feel alone or lonely. Even if family members are not supporting you right now, there are compassionate addiction specialists who can help. Reach out to our family therapy program in Murrieta, California today at 833.999.1941 to find out how our team can help.

The Importance of Family Support in Addiction Recovery

While every family may face its own unique challenges, addiction is not a unique problem. Perhaps you or someone in your family has become addicted to drugs or alcohol. If so, it’s important to remember that you are not alone in dealing with this. You and your family can join together with professionals in finding treatments that work for you.

Family support in addiction recovery is important not just for those in recovery, but for the whole family. Here’s why:

  • Addiction affects the whole family, not just those who are addicted to alcohol or drugs.
  • Treatment for recovery can be intense and difficult to complete, but is made easier with family support.
  • With structured therapy and treatment, family members can address negative consequences of addiction, and work through them in a healthy way.
  • Underlying causes or mental health symptoms can be brought to light, and given the understanding and therapy needed for deeper recovery.
  • Families can form healthy boundaries to beat addiction and fight relapse.

Although family relationships may turn sour due to addiction, reconciliation is possible. When family members are able to swallow their pride and start to learn more about addiction, everyone can work together to fight off addiction. With knowledgeable and nonjudgmental professionals at your side, your family can beat addiction together.
