Victory Strengthens Support for Families Dealing with Addiction

Because the disease of addiction affects the entire family, we believe rehabilitation should include care and support for family members.

Our Family Care Group, facilitated by a qualified counselor, meets weekly to provide education and support at no cost to families. This group is reserved for the family members of past or current clients of Victory Addiction Recovery Center.

Victory’s Family Care Group will help create realistic expectations for recovery through education and sharing in a safe, supportive environment. Group topics will include codependency, boundaries, disease model of addiction, 12 Steps and self care. Family Care is designed to support, not replace, inpatient family week and communications with your loved one’s primary counselor.

One of the major factors affecting those who have loved ones battling addiction is codependency. It is the desire to control someone who is out of control—codependency may be an unfamiliar term, and it is a difficult pattern to address. This pattern often develops in families altered by alcohol and drug addiction. Codependency carries with it feelings of guilt, shame and worthlessness, patterns of enabling, care-taking and difficulty identifying wants and feelings. Family members also carry with them many questions, concerns and feelings regarding the care and future of their loved one. The disease of addiction is complex, and often there are no clear-cut answers—this can be a difficult reality.
