Alcoholism & Addiction Are, Without Question, Family Diseases

For the client in substance abuse treatment, the family of origin and the genetic basis of addiction will be addressed in great detail. With that in mind, the damage and destruction to the rest of the entire family unit also needs to be addressed.

Even if the alcoholic or addict never does manage to ultimately stay sober, it is our mission to support the whole family unit and to present loving and constructive recovery strategies to those loved ones. First Step Recovery Center offers family and couples therapy, and we also have a Family Program set up with group sessions for the families, parents, spouses, life partners, and significant others of those in our treatment programs throughout Lancaster, Apple Valley, and other cities.

[su_note note_color=”#F0F0F0″]We also seek to connect family members to Al Anon Family Groups. Our group programs will feature panel discussions with successful members of those lifesaving and sanity-restoring fellowships. Very often, it takes the family / parent / spouse / LP / SO getting involved in Al Anon to close that last door of denial and to finally force the client to seek his or her own treatment.[/su_note]

Families will always remain welcome at First Step Recovery Center in Victorville, whether the alcoholic or addict chooses to fully participate or not.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_widget_sidebar show_bg=”false” sidebar_id=”sidebar_1″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][dt_testimonials type=”slider” autoslide=”6000″ number=”6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”vc_default” full_width=”stretch_row” equal_height=”yes” content_placement=”middle” seperator_indeed_locker=”” lk_t=”ism_template_1″ lk_tl=”5″ lk_io=”default” lk_lp=”0″ lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ ru_on=”0″ uhc_on=”0″ ur_on=”0″ ref_on=”0″ css=”.vc_custom_1473599298140{padding-top: 10px !important;padding-bottom: 40px !important;background-color: #0d404f !important;}”][vc_column offset=”vc_col-lg-8 vc_col-md-8 vc_col-xs-12″][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Need Help?” main_heading_color=”#ffffff” sub_heading_color=”#ffffff” alignment=”left” main_heading_margin=”margin-bottom:10px;” main_heading_font_size=”desktop:30px;” main_heading_line_height=”desktop:40px;” sub_heading_font_size=”desktop:17px;” sub_heading_line_height=”desktop:27px;”]Our Caring Staff Can Help You Take the First Step[/ultimate_heading][/vc_column][vc_column offset=”vc_col-lg-4 vc_col-md-4 vc_hidden-sm vc_col-xs-12 vc_hidden-xs”][ult_buttons btn_title=”Schedule a Consultation” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Ffirststephd.com%2Fschedule-a-consultation%2F|||” btn_align=”ubtn-right” btn_size=”ubtn-custom” btn_height=”38″ btn_padding_left=”25″ btn_padding_top=”15″ btn_title_color=”#ffffff” btn_bg_color=”rgba(255,255,255,0.01)” btn_hover=”ubtn-fade-bg” btn_bg_color_hover=”#ffffff” btn_title_color_hover=”#28a7fb” icon_size=”32″ btn_icon_pos=”ubtn-sep-icon-at-left” btn_border_style=”solid” btn_color_border=”rgba(255,255,255,0.4)” btn_color_border_hover=”#ffffff” btn_border_size=”4″ btn_radius=”0″ btn_font_family=”font_family:Montserrat|font_call:Montserrat|variant:700″ btn_font_style=”font-weight:700;” btn_font_size=”desktop:20px;” btn_line_height=”desktop:20px;” css_adv_btn=”.vc_custom_1473598607507{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
