Family Support Program

Clear Steps Recovery offers Bi-Weekly family support groups, where the family members of clients are given an opportunity to engage with each other, and the family coordinator. This is the time where family members learn how to support their loved ones, become more assertive in conversations, and look out for warning signs that might lead to a future relapse, as well as support one another in their own struggles. These sessions are free of charge to family members with a loved one currently enrolled in Clear Steps Recovery.

Substance use and abuse take a substantial toll on American families every year. The statistics are staggering: over 23 million people suffer from addiction, and over 100,000 people die from drug overdoses yearly. The harm caused is not only to the individuals caught in the cycle of addiction but also to their families. This compounding of an already tragic situation makes substance use and abuse a national health problem. Luckily, professional treatment programs like those at Clear Steps Recovery can help. One of the most effective therapeutic approaches we offer is our family support program in New Hampshire. Family support can take many forms, but all are designed to help the individual caught in the cycle of addiction and their family through the process of addiction treatment. If you have a family member struggling with addiction or are facing your own battles with drugs and alcohol, reach out to Clear Steps Recovery. Call (603) 769-8981 or contact us online to get started today.

Why Enroll in a Professional Family Support Program If Family Has Been Unable to Help in the Past?

Undoubtedly, if you have a family member struggling with substance use disorder, you have watched them suffer and possibly experienced adverse consequences. You may have tried to genuinely help your loved one, but with little lasting success.

You must remember that you are not a trained professional. You did not cause your loved one’s addiction, which is why you cannot cure it. Like a sprained ankle or a fractured arm that needs surgery, you bring your loved one to the family physician or the emergency room and allow the professionals to help them. The same applies to a family member struggling with drugs, alcohol, or both.

Clear Steps Recovery has a team of professionals that you can trust. We offer a comprehensive family support program to help families through the difficult process of addiction treatment. Our program includes individual and family therapy, as well as support groups. We believe that families are an integral part of the recovery process, and we are committed to helping you every step of the way.

Family Is an Integral Part of Treatment and Breaking the Cycle of Addiction

Addictions significantly impact families, and family involvement in treatment can reduce harm and improve treatment entry, treatment completion, and treatment outcomes for the individual coping with an addiction.

At Clear Steps Recovery, family members are an essential extension of our treatment team. However, we also know that it’s not just the suffering family member that needs help. Many family members feel like they have become lost, overwhelmed, or disillusioned. They have suffered from sleepless nights, “close calls,” and traumatic events that seemingly have changed their lives forever. Common statements from family members include:

  • “When or how will I trust again?”
  • “She was not raised like this.”
  • “What boundaries and parameters do I set without causing him to relapse?”

Do not be discouraged. Addiction is a mental illness. Everyone’s story may differ in the details, but the feelings and aftereffects are the same. We will shed new light on subjects that seem very dark. We will work with your individual needs as a family unit and educate you on how the human operating system works, allowing clarity and your personal wisdom to shine through.
