Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches offers a family addiction education and support group for families and significant others of current and former patients. The group helps families gain valuable knowledge and insight regarding their loved one’s post-treatment needs and the family’s role in their loved one’s recovery. Our group is open to loved ones of active drug or alcohol abusers, sober recovery patients, and patients currently in treatment.
Education and Empowerment for Patients’ Families
In addition to educating families regarding the disease of addiction and the importance of family involvement, the family addiction education and support group allow patients to exchange ideas about how to live with a loved one’s addiction and what to do after they complete treatment. Family members learn not only how to help a loved one who struggles with addiction, but also the importance of helping themselves. As they begin to focus on bettering their own lives for the sake of both themselves and their addicted loved one, their efforts toward self-care will inspire and empower the entire family unit.
