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.
Families will always remain welcome at First Step Recovery Center in Victorville, whether the alcoholic or addict chooses to fully participate or not.
