Supporting Your Loved One During Their Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Help for Addiction - the Bergand Group

Coping with a loved one in drug and alcohol rehab can be tough, but supporting them during this process is crucial. Doing some research about what they are going through can help you understand what is going on with their treatment and will give you the information you need to support them.

How Can I Support Someone During Their Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

Supporting someone who is in drug and alcohol rehab often helps them continue on their path to sobriety. Feeling supported by healthy, non-using friends and family, shows addicts that they are making the right choice and will have healthy friendships when they are done with recovery.

Family therapy is helpful for close relatives of the addict. Being able to openly speak about the struggles in a safe environment allows for healing and honesty. “Most professional alcohol and drug rehab programs include the family of the patient in his recovery process because research has shown that it reduces the risk of relapse.” Whether your family member is in an inpatient or outpatient program, there usually comes a time for family involvement. While family involvement helps the recovering addict, it can help heal severed ties within the family as well. Understanding that addiction is a disease, and becoming familiar with that disease, will help you see past the addiction.

Seeking help for yourself, while your loved one is in treatment, is also important. Addiction can damage relationships, especially when the addiction is uncontrolled. In order to rebuild your relationship with your loved one, it is important that you are able to vocalize what you are going through. Therapy can help you get all of your thoughts in order, and you can make a plan as to how to discuss them with your loved one.

The process surrounding drug and alcohol rehab is complicated, but with proper treatment and honest communication you and your loved one can get through this rough time. To learn more about drug and alcohol rehab, family, or individual therapy, get in touch with The Bergand Group today.
