Our Family Support Group
Addiction affects more than just the individual; it affects everyone around them. When a sibling, parent, child, or any other family member is struggling with addiction, it can leave you struggling, too. With the family support group at Yellowstone Recovery, you’ll receive guidance and support from peers and professionals who truly understand what you’re going through.
What You’ll Learn from Your Sessions
In addition to simply having a sounding board and a place to vent your frustrations and concerns among peers, family support group sessions introduce strategies for coping with your own issues, as well as for supporting your sobriety post-recovery.
Dealing with the Effects of Your Loved One’s Addiction
You’ll learn in our group that you are not alone and that your feelings are valid. You’ll come to understand how every member of the family is affected by an alcohol and/or drug problem, and that your family dynamic deserves help, too.
You’ll have the opportunity to work through your own resentments, fears, sadness, and other issues related to your loved one’s addiction. It’s not just about the addict; healing the entire family is key to everyone’s success.
Supporting Your Loved one and Safeguarding Against Relapse
Group sessions will teach you how to support sobriety by setting firm boundaries, creating structure, saying “no” to things, forbidding drugs and alcohol in the home, and holding your loved one accountable. Every member of the family who is of age to participate in the process needs to be part of the solution. We’ll help you get everyone on the same page and show you how to follow through on consequences.
You’ll also learn that addiction recovery is a process and that returning your loved one to rehab is an act of love, not an act of punishment or a sign of failure.
Trauma That Can Be Addressed in the Group
Our family support group addresses addiction-related issues like the following:
• Self-medication with drugs and/or alcohol
• Depression and anxiety
• Traumatic bonding between children and addicted parents
• Learned helplessness from feeling unable to change circumstances
• High-risk behaviors resulting from inner pain
• Guilt over escaping trauma while others stayed behind
• Re-enactment of a parent’s addiction
• Relationship conflicts (lack of affection, withdrawing from family, etc.)
Strong Drug Rehab Support for Families
Perhaps the most important thing our family support group offers is the ability to meet with families who have been hurt by addiction just as yours has. By sharing experiences, insights, and feelings with one another, families give one another the strength, hope, and understanding they need to keep fighting.
At Yellowstone Recovery, we want to help heal your family just as much as we want to heal your addicted loved one. With our professionally guided support groups and other valuable resources, you can build a stronger, healthier family that will be ready to move forward together when your loved one has completed rehab.
