During recovery and after you or your loved one graduate, it’s important to remember that abstaining from drinking does not treat alcoholism. Even when an alcoholic is abstinent, he will still feel the side effects: restlessness, discontent, fear, anger, anxiety, depression, remorse, guilt or any number of other mental and emotional distresses.
The only way for an addict to overcome those side effects to find a support net. An addict’s family should participate in his recovery. Bay Area Recovery Center holds family events every week to bring families together with their loved ones as they go through the steps to recovery. Family members can also go through one-on-one counseling with the experienced staff at the center.
In addition, families can connect with other families going through the same thing. Another resource for families is AL-ANON, a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experiences, strength, and hope in order to solve their common problems.
Bay Area Recovery Center creates more than an environment for recovery, it also creates an environment through which recovering addicts gain a fellowship of friends and family participating in their lives – lives full of hope and strength – lives that have more texture, color and meaning.
