Family Treatment: Talk To Your Kids About Addiction
Some parents do not talk to their child about their spouse’s addiction problem. While some children really are too young to understand what’s going on or even remember that their dad or mom went into a family treatment program, other kids are very aware what’s going on and need someone to talk to. A great rehab will have treatment for the whole family. Where the spouse and children can come in and get some of what’s going on and what they’re feeling off their chest.
Alcohol Detox: The First Steps To Getting Sober
The first step to getting sober is entering an alcohol detox program. Without going through detox and getting the toxins out of your body and your blood stream you cannot recover from an addiction problem. It’s the first step on the road to getting well. A trained rehab team will be able to walk you through detox so that you aren’t alone when going through the withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal is different for everyone. Some addicts have a lot of anxiety about it and end up doing fine. Others aren’t worried about it at all and realize quickly how deep their addiction runs.
