Addiction treatment is a time of healing, not just for the addicted person but for the people at home as well.
Taking time to fix some of the damage done is part of the focus for most family members, as is reconnecting with friends and personal interests. The respite from dealing with an addicted loved one’s addiction on a daily basis is much needed – but some time will need to be dedicated to preparing for the person’s return home.
Here’s what you can do to make your loved one’s homecoming easier for everyone.
It can take time to create a new sense of “normal” in recovery. Nothing about the process of building a new life without drugs and alcohol is magical or will occur overnight. Forgiveness and patience are key, but so too are respecting everyone’s boundaries and making sure that your whole family is continually moving forward and making progress in recovery.
