Substance Abuse is a Family Disease

If you feel your entire family is being affected by substance abuse, you are not alone. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) identifies substance abuse as a family disease that can destroy the stability of the home and affect each member’s mental, physical, and emotional health, as well as your finances.

However, you don’t have to feel helpless. There is hope through counseling, therapy, and support from licensed professionals that want to see your family thrive as you reclaim your home together.

How a Family Therapy Program Can Help You

Alcoholism or drug addiction can create a complicated dynamic that affects every family member in different ways. Some members will last out. Others will withdraw. One thing is certain, however: Everyone is affected by the addiction.

Northern Illinois Recovery Center offers a family therapy program that includes different types of therapy and counseling so that each member of your family can heal and recover in their own unique way.

Some of our treatment programs include:

These programs are designed to help the addict overcome their dependency while providing complete support and counseling for the family. Everyone has the opportunity to address issues, discuss their problems, and find the path to recovery together.

Dual Diagnosis Therapy

One of the things your family may discover through therapy is that other factors are triggering the drug or alcohol addiction. When mental health concerns present simultaneously as a substance use disorder, and individuals are said to have a co-occurring disorder, this kind of disorder requires dual diagnosis treatment. In our program, we can treat the following mental health concerns that appear alongside addiction:

  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Depression
  • PTSD

If so, dual diagnosis treatment can address both the dependency and psychiatric conditions that trigger the addiction. Through dual diagnosis, your family can understand why the addiction is happening and what is causing it.

A qualified professional can provide a dual diagnosis and recommend the right therapy, including full family addiction counseling. When your family is involved in dual diagnosis, each member can learn what is happening inside the addict and provide support for psychiatric disorders or illnesses.
