If you are the family member of the ‘addict’ or ‘alcoholic’ that you think requires alcohol rehab, it can be incredibly painful to watch your loved one slowly destroy the family and often kill themselves. As you have probably discovered there is a lack of information and a lack of support for you. There are many different opinions as to what the best course of action is. Here is a list of suggestions:
- Maintain your boundaries. Remember that you are also an important person who deserves love and respect.
- Do not neglect yourself or allow yourself to be treated like a doormat.
- Do not make hollow threats. It is important that you stick to your word.
- Do not lecture or bring up the past. There is no benefit.
- Encourage all attempts to seek help.
- Alcohol rehab for young people
- Drug rehab for young people
- Alcohol rehab for the retired
- Drug rehab for the retired

Addiction is a family illness. Much like throwing a stone into the water, the ripple effect of addiction can be far-reaching, with those closest experiencing the most disturbance.
At The Providence Projects, we are very keen to get the family involved as much as possible. Families will have the opportunity of attending family days, speaking to therapists to find out what other support is available and attending family therapy sessions.
Family therapy sessions are conducted for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it may be with your spouse, your parents or your children. The content will always be different but the primary goal is to start a process of healthy, honest and open communication.
All research demonstrates that, if the family are involved in the recovery process both as individuals and as a group, the better the chance of a long term recovery.
These sessions will be facilitated by counsellors at The Providence Projects who are highly experienced in the arena of family therapy.
