Compassionate Beginnings

Family Support


When an alcoholic or drug addicted individual is in need of help, the family members are inevitably experiencing turmoil, confusion, and a sense of overwhelm. If the individual is in recovery, the family members are usually exhausted and may even experience resentment of what they had to go through. I am a certified Structured Family Recovery (SFR) facilitator, using "It Takes a Family" by Debra Jay.  Engaging the family on a weekly basis, the SFR process supports each member as they heal from the effects the disease has had on the entire family unit.
