As an individual goes through the process of rehabilitation to break the
grasp of an addiction and establish a sober lifestyle, it is important
to learn about substance abuse and addiction to achieve control over these
issues. Not only should patients have an addiction education, but their
families should be involved as well. Retreat at Lancaster County makes
addiction education for patients and their families a priority, because
awareness can significantly boost long-term success in recovery.
Components of Addiction
Addiction is a complex problem that may have a number of triggers, including
troubled relationships, behavioral disorders, and genetics. By appreciating
the full gravity of addiction as a disease and learning about the factors
that may complicate addiction, patients can gain a clear perspective on
why they abuse drugs or alcohol, which will be helpful in moving forward with a
drug-free lifestyle. Families and friends can also benefit from this education, as these individuals
will provide the network of support for patients once they leave the rehab
center. Here’s a closer look at some of the key aspects to understand
Codependency – Friends and family members may have to accept their role in a loved one’s
addiction, as codependency often exists in relationships of individuals
struggling with substance abuse. Without meaning to, a loved one may enable
addictive behaviors or pile on their own emotional stress.
Disease model of addiction – Addiction is a disease and should be treated as such. Understanding addiction
as a disease means taking stock of the environmental, biological, and
emotional factors of this disease and the consequences of neglecting treatment.
It is also important to recognize how addiction changes the behavior and
chemistry of the brain, which can cause increased sensitivity to environmental
and emotional changes.
Family Education in Addiction Treatment
Studies have associated higher recovery rate from addiction with the involvement
of friends and family in the rehabilitation process. That’s why
Retreat at Lancaster County provides a four-hour
family education program that offers information, resources, and coping tools for families to help
their loved ones. Families will learn effective communication strategies
for loved ones in treatment, details regarding the science behind addiction,
and support systems for loved ones who are transitioning back home from rehab.
