To the Family
The effects of addiction are devastating, the pain unbearable. Addiction tears families apart and can feel as if there is no hope to become whole again. Often times, loved ones don’t know what to believe or who to turn to in this most desperate time of need. To the family there is no hope without getting help.
Although recovery is a lifelong endeavor, the process starts with cleansing the body of toxins and relaxing the mind from the stressors of everyday life. This initial process is detoxification. It is a time to be medically and mentally evaluated and stabilized. It is also a time to prepare oneself for the next step in the recovery process whether it is a fulltime live-in residential program or another program of treatment. Therefore, Advanced Recovery Solution offers our clients the means to begin to prepare for successful life long sobriety through detoxing their system, engaging in recovery-focused activities, treatment planning and other supportive measures.
During the detoxification period, the family may feel a sense of relief knowing where their loved one is laying their head each night, but it can also be a time of anxiety and questioning. Many families are very familiar with the destruction caused by addiction, but often times are unfamiliar with the disease of addiction and what having this disease means in its entirety both to the addict as well as to the family.
We at Advanced Recovery Solution appreciate the need to understand what the detoxification process for your loved one will entail, but also to understand what the future may hold both short and long term. Our Staff makes sure that the family receives initial and regularly scheduled updates as to progress of your loved one. We also seek to provide you with the knowledge, skills and support you will need for the future. We are available by phone at any time to answer any questions or concerns you may have along the way. We want to not only be sure that your loved one feels safe, comfortable and well taken care of – we want you to feel exactly the same.
