Importance of the Family‏

The role of the family in alcohol and drug rehabilitation:

Most calls received at The Providence Projects are from a friend, loved one or family member. The person with the drug or alcohol problem is often too preoccupied with their addiction to invest time in seeking help. Generally family members experience feelings of anger, frustration, guilt, hopelessness and desperation. Once the addict or alcoholic enters drug rehabilitation the process of recovery begins, not only for the individual, but for the whole family. At The Providence Projects, we look to involve and engage family members as much as possible in the recovery process. All evidence clearly demonstrates that the involvement of the family results in improved outcomes and a better chance of long term recovery. As part of the alcohol treatment or drug rehabilitation programme, family members are invited to the rehab centre where they are given information about addiction, alcoholism, the effects of drink and drugs, and more importantly the recovery process and what to expect. They will also have a chance to meet other family members in similar situations and find out how they have coped with their issues. As part of the treatment programme, regular couple counselling sessions and family sessions are provided with the goal of encouraging open, honest and respectful communication. If you are the loved one of someone who has a drug or alcohol problem. Call today on 0800 9550945 and speak to one of our trained therapists.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"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 "… 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…”
"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..."
