Advice for the Family

HELPING YOU UNDERSTAND

If you are the family member of the ‘addict’ or ‘alcoholic’ that you think requires alcohol rehab, it can be incredibly painful to watch your loved one slowly destroy the family and often kill themselves. As you have probably discovered there is a lack of information and a lack of support for you. There are many different opinions as to what the best course of action is. Here is a list of suggestions:

  • Family Issues
  • Maintain your boundaries. Remember that you are also an important person who deserves love and respect.
  • Do not neglect yourself or allow yourself to be treated like a doormat.
  • Do not make hollow threats. It is important that you stick to your word.
  • Do not lecture or bring up the past. There is no benefit.
  • Encourage all attempts to seek help.

At The Providence Projects, family therapy is an intrinsic part of the treatment programme. We actively encourage family members to get involved as research clearly demonstrates family involvement improves the chance of success.

"Am so so grateful to the Provy. Simply would not be alive today without them. I was skin and bones, a ghost who had given up on life. I found a programme that I could work that has not just kept me sober, but has given me back a way of life that I never had had before. I feel now that I was meant to walk through those doors, I didn't understand at the time how ill I was. Provy staff and peers, supported me, signposted me, councelled me, hugged me, encouraged me, and never gave up on me. Today, I am looking after my son who is off school sick. It's taken 18 months to see him. And without the providence project, I am absolutely sure it wouldn't have happened. Today, is a miracle for me and my son. Thank you, I am so so grateful to you all xxx

"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams " as it says in the big blue book - it's true
He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough I found them very supportive and would not hesitate to recommend them."
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
