Addiction affects friends and family as well as the person suffering from addiction. BHG supports families as their loved ones move through the outpatient drug treatment process.

Information for Families

Drug addiction is a disease that affects more than just the individual – friends and family also suffer. Spouses, parents, siblings, and children are all affected by a family member’s addiction. All aspects of family life are disrupted, with relationships strained, finances stretched, and household issues ignored. The family member suffering from addiction can become alienated – they aren’t the same person you know and love. Addiction causes people to manipulate and abuse the ones they love, often resulting in damaged relationships between other family members. A family’s finances can suffer tremendously; addiction will force an individual to exhaust all of the financial resources at their disposal, regardless of the harm caused to the rest of the family.

 

BHG takes pride in not only treating the patient, but also providing assistance and guidance to help heal the family. Each of our drug abuse rehabilitation facilities has the resources to help the patient and the family as they move through the recovery process. If, for some reason, we can’t provide the needed service in our facility, we can direct the patient and the family to the appropriate party in our network of community partners.
