You have managed to get your loved one into treatment, so what happens next?
At The Recovery Coach NY, we believe that successful recovery happens when the whole family is involved in the addict/alcoholic’s recovery. Families are an essential asset to recovery management for a recovering addict. Our staff works with each member of the family offering coaching and support during these changing and sometimes difficult times. Here are a few ways to cope and learn about addiction recovery, while taking care of yourself.
Be aware of continuing challenges
Even though your loved one may have successfully completed a rehabilitation program, he or she could continue to suffer consequences of addiction. These consequences could create additional financial and emotional distress for your family. Remember: you are not alone. You have the support of The Recovery Coach NY and your family. It’s important to keep in mind that your loved one is taking the first steps toward creating a better situation for him or herself and the rest of your family. The addict is slowly learning how to navigate a sober life. Although it’s not easy in the beginning, in the long run, all of the recovering addict’s hard work toward sobriety will pay off.
Addiction Education and Home Support
We invite you to work with our team to learn how to support the recovery process at home. One of the most important aspects of home support is keeping the house an alcohol and drug-free environment. Having access to drugs and alcohol around the home poses challenges for the recovering addict, and could lead to relapse. Learn how to be supportive by continuing to educate yourself about the emotional effects of alcohol and addiction. Take part in the recovery process for the well-being of your loved one, yourself and your family.
