Family Program & Services
“Addiction is a family disease” is a common phrase, well known in addiction treatment and recovery.
When an individual becomes addicted, every single person in an addict’s immediate family is affected by substance abuse. The level of addiction and substance of choice will contribute to the impact that addiction has on the whole family unit. “Addiction is a family disease” is a common phrase, well known in addiction treatment and recovery.
There are a number of issues that arise from dealing with a loved one who struggles with the disease of addiction. An eye-opening and sad statistic in today’s generation is the number of children being raised by grandparents. This number has drastically increased over the past two decades, according to the U. S. Census. The two main causes of this are addiction and mental illness.
Other common issues that arise within a family unit brought forth from a substance use disorder can include but are not limited to:
- Domestic Violence
- Child Neglect or Abuse
- Financial Difficulties
- Legal Issues
- Personal Conflict
