CeDAR’s Family Program provides education and support for any family member who has a loved one struggling with substance abuse. Addiction is a disease that is destructive to your entire family. It can rob each individual of their identity, create dysfunctional behaviors, and damage relationships. Family members often blame themselves or try to control an addict’s behavior. CeDAR’s Family Week workshop gives you guidance and education, including:
CeDAR Family Week happens once per month to help you and your family learn about your loved one’s addiction and recovery for yourself. It’s a 5-day program scheduled for Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone, 15 years old and up, can participate in CeDAR Family Week. Family Week is also open to the public. Contact Blair Thurston for more information about cost and schedule.Family Members Click Here for More Information
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.
The “cure” isn’t what you might think. Like any chronic disease, addiction requires dedicated maintenance to keep in remission. This will be the responsibility of your addicted loved one, not you. You can find support from other family members who also have addicted loved ones.
Addiction in the family usually hurts everyone involved. Each person needs to get help to restore themselves to health – mental and physical. 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
