Loved One Struggling to Stay Sober During The Holidays?

Often, in the face of substance use disorders, there is a complete breakdown in relationships with the needing recovery.

Not only is the suffering person scared, frustrated, and hopeless but so are the concerned family members and friends. Sleepless nights spent waiting for him or her to come home, numerous calls to cell phones, and horrible arguments keep the home in turmoil and unrest. Often, this is even more apparent during the holidays as friends and family gather to celebrate. While everyone wants to be helpful, family members and friends are frequently met with distrust or even anger when suggesting their loved one seek help. Effective treatment programs can bridge this divide and get your family moving in a healthy direction.

Depending on the situation your loved one is facing, mental health providers and treatment professionals provide an array of services to help the entire family begin the journey of recovery. Even during the holidays, many addiction specialists stand ready to assist you with a customized plan for treatment and ongoing recovery. At Origins, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, no matter what the holiday. We offer patient-driven care where people in need of gender-separate, gender-specific, or age-specific treatment receive the help they need.

Why should I choose Origins for my loved one?

Origins is not just another “treatment center” or “drug rehab” in the classic sense. Many people seeking wellness have unsuccessfully tried that approach. We are men and women who have dedicated our lives to helping those who also wish to recover and regain their health. In distinct contrast to the one-dimensional programs commonly offered at traditional treatment centers, Origins’ recovery philosophy embodies a complete, multidisciplinary approach. We focus on the physical, mental, emotional, psychiatric, and spiritual components of wellness because we understand that in order to recover, all these aspects must be treated simultaneously.

Our Family Programs

We know that alcohol and other drug addiction a family disease that affects the entire family system. We are committed to empowering families and loved ones by arming families with the facts about the illness of addiction and by facilitating the identification of the dysfunctional family dynamics that can prolong the addiction. This will allow the healing in the family unit to begin. At an appropriate point in your loved one’s treatment, you will be invited to participate in our multi-day Family Program. Participants will attend consecutive daily sessions covering various recovery topics as they begin to experience the benefits of a supportive group setting and have an opportunity to interact with other families.

Origins’ Family Program is an intensive retreat offered at residential centers. Each program is designed to provide a multifaceted therapeutic experience for the patient and family members alike. Patients and families participate in psycho-educational and medical discussions, private counseling opportunities, and experiential activities that support healing. Families also receive Al-Anon and 12-Step exposure and have time with their sober loved one within the group setting. These holistic options educate family members about the disease model of addiction and recovery and lay the groundwork to help them begin their own personal recovery.
