The Importance of Family

Recovery is most likely when supported through relationships and social networks. Family members are often the main champions of their loved one’s recovery. Family provides essential support for those fighting addiction. Family and friends can also find positive healing and hope, even during this difficult process. During recovery, family members may experience changes or shifts to their social, occupational, and financial lives. They may begin to see challenges as well to the overall quality of family life they’ve known. Experiences like this often create family stress, guilt, shame, anger, fear, anxiety, loss, grief, and isolation. Hope and resilience in recovery is as vital for family members, who need support to promote their own health and well-being.
