Families of addicted individuals are in crisis. Substance abuse affects the entire family system, not just the individual. A broken family system is engaged in codependency, enabling continued substance abuse. The result? An addict’s life continues to be out of control and unmanageable.
Take control. It’s time to say, “Enough.” You have a much greater chance for success if the whole family is engaged in recovery, not just the addict. Previous actions have been ineffective and you need a plan – one equipped with boundaries, accountability and consequences to heal the family system.
Turn helplessness into hope. In Chronic Hope: Families & Addiction, Kevin Petersen, MA, LMFT, shares an integrated, holistic approach to healing families in crisis due to addiction and codependency.
