The family will have things they need to work through and address their own underlying problems created by the addiction. This is all part of the healing process and when the family can work through their own issues, it does help promote healthy recovery after treatment.
Certified interventionists can help provide families with continued support and guidance. These are often the do’s and don’ts while your loved one is going through drug rehabilitation. When you receive phone calls from them, or emails, or a written letter, you may want to know how to properly respond, provide support and help them stay focused on their reason for being there. Most addicts within the first couple of weeks of treatment will contact their family regularly not wanting to finish their program. This is normal; however, Newman Interventions provides the family with ongoing support and will help guide them through how to handle this situation. When someone in treatment does not get their way, they will threaten to leave and typically the first call goes out to the family.
What happens if they leave the drug rehab center?
Because drug treatment centers cannot force an addict to stay, they may end up leaving and calling the family wanting to come home. Case management allows us the opportunity to help families manage these situations if they come up. Part of this is helping the family know how to tell when their loved one is lying or being manipulative. When the intervention is complete, it is important to stay the course and stick with the boundaries that have been established. This is going back to the bottom line that has been set and the consequences for if they do not finish treatment. If a family is unsure about how to go about this, Newman Interventions will help and provide the proper guidance.
Family involvement is crucial, and there is always someone or a place that makes it easy for an addict to use drugs or alcohol. There are extensive information and resources that family members can access to help them understand how they can avoid this from happening again. Intervention is taking control, establishing boundaries, and demonstrating to your loved one that the family has had enough and will not tolerate this any longer. Family case management and drug counseling are just as important for the family as it is for your loved one going through their own counseling and therapy. Our case management and on-going support are there for the family to utilize while their loved one is going through drug rehab and preparing for aftercare.
