What does a family recovery coach do?
What role does a family play in our recovery? Better yet, can our family and family members contribute to our addiction and possible relapse? We will give you the answers to the following questions over the next few minutes, but lets first look into what exactly a family recovery coach does. First off let me state this, as much as the addict needs a recovery coach, so does the family! Many times the family has “stuck its head” in the sand, much like an ostrich, to enable the addict all the while “not rocking the boat” in the everyday family dynamic.
Addicts throw tantrums when they don’t get what they want. Addicts steal when they don’t get what they want and addicts lie to get what they want. Family members of addicts are notorious for “turning a blind eye” when these actions occur or giving the addict the idea that it’s OK to act in this manner to get what they want. People this is called ENABLING and it is extremely detrimental to the addicts recovery and well being.
Most of the time family members want the addict’s behavior to change while having absolutely no idea that the family’s behavior is a major contributor to the addict’s drug use. So remember this, addiction is an extremely complicated issue and recovery is even more complicated! It takes an equal amount of knowledge and cooperation from the recovering addict and everyone surrounding the recovering addict.
Addicts in recovery have a much greater success rate when their family enters into some type of family recovery.
