An addiction to alcohol and drugs can be devastating for friends and families of an addiction sufferer. Family and friends can struggle with the huge impact that an addicts behaviour can have and they can try to manage for prolonged periods of time which can often be for many years. Don’t wait until you can;t manage, seek help for your friend or family member as soon as you realise there may be a problem.
Ocean Recovery Centre has been helping families and friends of addiction suffers for years. We ensure each family member is also provided the support they need to repair relationships and work together to beat the drug or alcohol addiction.
People close to an addiction sufferer can experience feelings of shame and guilt, often creating reasons to share the blame for the addiction. The causes of addiction are different with every client and often the reasons behind the addiction are complex. There is no ‘quick fix’ and take time to fully resolve; there maybe set backs along the way but dedication from the sufferer and their friends and family is essential for complete recovery.
Treating addiction is a hard job, for the client and loved ones, be it can be made even harder if we cannot support their friends and family support network. Family members can feel isolated as they battle with the behaviour and addiction of their loved one. At Ocean Recovery Centre we are here to help ensure that these feelings are not experienced and we work closely with friends and family during the whole treatment process, including when the client enters our aftercare treatment programme.
Our experienced team are available 7 days a week to talk and provide you, as the family member or friend, with as much guidance and information that you need. Just 1 phone call is all that is needed and our dedicated admissions team will help you help you and the addiction sufferer select the best treatment programme.
The admission is only the start of the recovery journey at Ocean Recovery Centre. Throughout the stay at our clinic, staff will provide you with regular updates and feedback (if authorised) via the phone and offer any support regarding any concerns you may have.
