Can I get my loved one to stop using drugs and alcohol?
You can provide them the opportunity to seek treatment for themselves. What you can do for yourself is learn how to hold your boundaries about their substance use. CeDAR’s Family Week workshop can give you the necessary support and education to take care of yourself, no matter what your loved one does.
Will they be cured once they complete rehab?
The “cure” isn’t what you might think. Like any chronic disease, addiction requires dedicated recovery to keep in remission. You can learn about the disease of addiction during Family Week. You’ll also find support from other family members who also have addicted loved ones.
Why do I need to get help if I’m not an addict?
Addiction in the family usually affects everyone involved. Each person deserves to get help in restoring their mental and emotional health. CeDAR Family Week is about you and your family. Your addicted loved one already has the support of a treatment team. You deserve a support team of your own.Sign Up for CeDAR Family Week
