Recovery Unplugged Family Recovery Program

Families often devote much time and energy toward their loved one’s issues that it becomes difficult to focus on their own day-to-day. This is because many people aren’t aware of how to support an individual in treatment.

The family of a loved one facing mental health issues may also suffer in similar ways to the individual. It’s important to maintain a positive and loving environment for those struggling with mental health.

The road to recovery is long full of temptation, a united front within the family goes a long way. At Recovery Unplugged, we welcome Family Members to be active in the Recovery and provide resources for Post-Treatment Success.

Supporting Loved Ones in Treatment

A large percentage of individuals undergoing treatment will want to leave a program prematurely at some point. This can often be a response to the stress and shame that an individual feels when battling their issues.

Unfortunately in same cases a family trying to help an induvial can actually further contribute to the issue and disrupt the recovery process.

The family should learn be strong enough to say NO to a loved one in recovery when they ask to come home. This might mean not taking phone calls, refusing requests for funds and allowing the patient work through the discomfort.
