Addiction is called “a family disease” for good reason. Family members are profoundly affected when a loved one becomes addicted to alcohol or another drug.
By the time most families reach out for help and drug treatment, the disease of addiction has typically progressed to a crisis level for the addict and family alike. Our programs and services at Hazelden Betty Ford are designed to help not only people who have addiction but the entire family—from spouses to parents or caregivers to siblings and children—because everyone affected by alcohol or other drug abuse needs support, care and healing.
Through a variety of educational presentations and activities, Hazelden Betty Ford’s Family Program provides your whole family the opportunity to begin your own journey of recovery.
Recovery is stronger when all family members understand the nature of drug addiction and are involved in the healing process. By educating you about the disease of addiction and the different ways family members are affected—whether parent, child, spouse or partner—our programs and services help you:
– Work through the chaos you’re experiencing
– Set healthy boundaries
– Rebuild trusting relationships
– Improve communication with one another
