Recovery Road offers family members opportunities through education and group therapy to work together in gaining knowledge about issues like alcoholism and substance abuse so they can understand their loved one’s illness and help them find the power to change its self destructive course.
Any illness can affect the whole family and not just their loved one. In any chronic illness the family will develop a dual relationship, one with the person and the other with the illness. As the disease progresses family members often feel they are losing their relationship with the person, and become angry in dealing with the illness taking the person away from them. As the patient recovers the true person begins to emerge in time, and this allows the family to reconnect with the person.
We believe each patient should be treated with respect, and have access to and knowledge about different rehab treatment modalities that suit his or her needs.
