As the saying goes, substance use and addiction is a family disease. And so too is recovery. Substance use and addiction often creates unhealthy family dynamics that build on top of one another in a vicious cycle. Through no fault of their own, family members often become absorbed by the addiction of their loved one, resulting in a codependency that often leads the way to further destructive behavior. The result is often a constant sense of frustration, anger and anxiety that afflicts everyone in the family unit. As a Nationally Certified Family Recovery Coach (NCFRC), Dana Golden will help learn your role in your loved ones' addiction, how you got there and how to change it. Through family recovery coaching, we help each family member understand what role they play in their loved one's addiction: The Enabler, Hero, Lost Child, Mascot or Scapegoat. Improving the family dynamic with Family Recovery Coaching, is also an important part to successful and lasting recovery for your loved one suffering from addiction. Changing your role in relation to the addict can be the catalyst for your loved one to seek their own help or help them stay on their path of recovery. By creating a vision and an action plan, replacing old thoughts and behaviors with new ones, and implementing boundaries, you can have all the benefits of happy and healthy relationships while finding peace and contentment for yourself, whether your addicted loved one is finding their own recovery or not. Whether your loved one is heading into treatment or in early stages of denial, there is no better time for you, the family members, to start your own path of recovery. Family recovery is just as important for the loved ones as recovery is for the addict. It is the means to restore and revitalize our own sense of self, purpose and joy in the miraculous experience of life. * PS: Prefer to call to schedule a consultation?
