To shine the light of love on family recovery
Do any of these apply to you?
I don't understand why my loved one won't stop drinking alcohol or using substances, even though I've explained how it makes me feel.
I have trouble trusting my loved one.
I struggle with forgiving my loved one for things that have happened in the past.
Sometimes my worry for my loved one's safety and sobriety almost feels like an obsession, or others have told me that I am obsessing.
Sometimes I react to situations without thinking about it when it comes to my loved one, even though I know better, and sometimes this has resulted in me making choices that I later regret.
I find that I can have a negative attitude when it comes to my loved one.
My loved one and I struggle with communicating in a respectful way.
My family and I are on different pages when it comes to solving problems.
I feel that my life is filled with chaos and is an emotional roller coaster.
I have put my own personal health and wellbeing on hold while caring for my loved one.
I feel full of shame and like I can't tell others what's really going on at home.
Did you answer yes to any of the questions listed above? The disease of addiction impacts the entire family and everyone close to the struggling loved one. Many times, family members isolate and feel alone.

There are no guarantees for your loved one’s recovery, however family and friends can learn strategies to become their loved one's best chance for recovery. Regardless of whether your loved one gets help, you and other family members need and deserve appropriate education, help and support in finding healthy ways to overcome the negative effects of the disease.
Testimonial: The Journey
My family and I would not have survived without working on our own recovery while our son was working on his. My husband and I had a therapist that we worked with so we could "get on the same page" and be a united front. Plus we attended group meetings to educate ourselves on what we should and shouldn't do. We transformed how we did things so that we could walk alongside our son in a loving way, while not contributing to his substance use disorder. We learned how to use leverage, boundaries and effective communication skills. Most of all, we stopped being reactive and became more aware of how we needed to show up in our relationship with our son. Just like our son, we have been on a journey.
