Support For Families of Addicts in Essex

Support for Family Members of People Suffering from Addiction Problems

Here at Infinity Addiction Solutions, we are sensitive to the strain that substance misuse and addiction can place a family unit under. Sometimes, it can feel like a loved-one’s addiction might stress your family to breaking point.

Firstly, you should realise that such problems are not uncommon and that you are not alone in facing them. Many families have been through something similar and come out the other side strengthened for it.

That said, discussing these matters – even with the understanding and caring professionals at Infinity Addiction Solutions – can be tough. After all, these matters are often extremely private and sensitive in their nature. They can carry elements of shame or feelings of guilt, too.

We Know It’s Important To Get Support For Family Members of Addicts

Bear in mind that our consultants fully understand and appreciate the impact of addiction on the family unit as a whole.

Common Traits of Addiction Effecting Families

  • Anxiety
  • Fear
  • Hurt
  • Frustration
  • Mistrust

The above can all occur when a loved one is on a path toward seeming self-destruction.

Feeling helpless is common but there are things that you can do to help. Equally, feeling unloved by the addict due to their behaviour will often mean that family members attempt to redress the balance by pleading, demanding or even avoiding talking about the subject of addiction at all.

These are normal coping strategies that unknowingly drives the family unit farther and farther apart.

At Infinity Addiction Solutions, we can guide family members on courses of action that will put their loved-one on the path to recovery and do so in such a way that also supports the family unit at the same time.

Support Programmes For Families Of Addicts at Infinity Addiction Solutions

We are proud to offer a variety of family support programmes which are facilitated by highly skilled professionals who are up-to-date with the latest techniques in uniting a family unit facing addiction. The aim is to get your loved one the help and treatment they need to cope with their addiction and, ultimately, to recover from it.

Infinity Addiction Solutions offers a range of packages designed to help resolve crisis situations before they get out of control. This means supporting families prior to addiction treatments, during them and after treatment has occurred. Typical support packages include:

This means understanding substance misuse, dependency and addictive behaviours more fully. By better informing a family about the illness of addiction and the recommended steps to take, so familial support of a loved-one suffering from addiction can be greatly enhanced.

This approach involves an addiction professional who is trained to work closely with families when a loved one is resistant to the idea of obtaining professional support, for example admitting into a rehabilitation facility. They will often help families to make an intervention more effective than it otherwise would have been, steering the addicted person or loved on towards accepting treatment.

This package operates like a post-treatment insurance policy whereby an agreement is drawn up which will help a recovering addict and his or her family to act appropriately as recovery continues. Such packages function over an agreed period and often help to greatly reduce the risk of triggers which might lead to a relapse. Typically, they might include drug or alcohol testing but they vary according to the needs of the individual.

Speak To Our Team About Support For Families of Addicts

Sometimes family members will find it tough to get the addict in their midst to admit there is a problem at all. Commonly, addicts will claim that they don’t need help, that others need more help than they do, that help will cost too much money or that something else is more important in the short-term.

At Infinity Addiction Solutions, we can assist you with strategies to overcome these objections and help you to guide your loved one into a state where he or she is more willing to talk about the sort of therapeutic measures that will suit their needs.

You can talk to our consultants in total confidence about your family member’s addiction. We’ll help you to get some perspective on what is ‘normal’ behavior compared with what only seems ‘normal’ when you are sharing your life with an addicted person. This, alone, can be a big emotional help.
