A big part of recovery success nearly always includes the involvement of the addict’s family. Here at Action Recovery Group, along with a very strong focus on the recovery of the individual, we also provide a lot of education, support and healing opportunities for spouses, parents and other family members. This is essential because addiction doesn’t just affect the one drinking or using—it affects the entire family system. Addressing the needs of the family helps build a healthy circle of support around the recovering addict, and very importantly provides a healthy environment for him or her to return to after treatment.

Here’s a great book chapter on the effect of substance on families—http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK64258/
