Facing substance use disorder (SUD) can leave you feeling isolated and alone. You may feel like you’re too broken or too far gone to get help. Like many others, you may avoid getting professional treatment not because you don’t want to get better, but because you’re afraid of possible failure. We’re here to tell you that you are not beyond help; we’re here for you, and a life of sustained wellness is possible. To give you and others with SUD the best shot at recovery, Family-Centered Services uses a comprehensive treatment approach to heal every part of you and your family. 

Lack of Support in Recovery

A network of support is one of the most valuable things a person can have in SUD treatment. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), community is one of the four pillars of recovery. SAMHSA defines community as “networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope.” When you think of a network like that, you probably think of family, friends, and peers; the people who know and understand you the best. 

Unfortunately, SUD can put a strain on those important relationships. Your family and friends may have unresolved feelings of anger and shame surrounding your addiction. While this is normal, it can leave you feeling abandoned, alone, and discouraged. You may even start to feel that you deserve their anger, which leads to feelings of guilt and self-hatred. These feelings, while valid and real, are not conducive to a successful recovery. This is why having a network of people to believe in and support you is so important: It gives you a boost of self-esteem and helps you believe that you deserve to get better. 

Family-Centered Services encourages family involvement in the recovery process, but whether or not this is possible, you will have a support network here with us. All of our clients are set up with a case manager and team of professionals who will provide a comprehensive treatment approach. 

What Is a Comprehensive Treatment Approach?

Taking a comprehensive approach to treatment means covering all of your bases. Throughout your treatment, your case management team will consider your mental, physical, and emotional health and help you pursue wellness in every area. We know that SUD isn’t simple, and that’s why we have a team of clinicians and addiction professionals with a wide array of knowledge and experience. From your very first phone call, their goal is to understand you and your SUD to give you the best chance at recovery possible. Your case manager is the main source of support and direction for you and your family throughout the process. They can provide you with accountability, offer motivation, and educate you on the disease of addiction. 

The Value of a Case Manager During Recovery

As you progress through your treatment and into long-term recovery, your needs will change. Your case manager understands this and is prepared to evolve the support and resources they provide to meet your needs. For example, early treatment is often a turbulent time when new behaviors have not yet been established. During this time, your case manager may put a bigger emphasis on accountability and relapse prevention. 

After establishing a treatment routine and stabilizing some healthy habits, the focus might shift to healing from trauma through therapy. They will help you craft an aftercare plan for when you leave treatment and get back to everyday life. Even when you have months or years of sobriety under your belt, your support network will still be there for you. They can help you get involved in your community and find purpose in a life of sustained wellness. 

Our comprehensive treatment approach also includes a focus on healing your family system. Many families who have been affected by SUD have developed unhealthy habits to cope with the stress of addiction. Some common issues that can be addressed through the comprehensive treatment approach are:

  • Codependency
  • Communication skills
  • Detachment
  • Enabling behaviors
  • Establishing boundaries
  • Denial

Although you can always rely on your case management team for support, a strong family network can be an amazing tool in recovery, especially after discharge. Because of this, our goal is to help families like yours rebuild trust, respect, and an understanding of SUD. We want to give families the gift of a new story of long-term recovery. 

Fcs Is With You Every Step of the Way

Working with a treatment team that is dedicated to your success can make all the difference in your recovery journey.
