Family involvement and support is essential for a successful road to recovery from co-occurring substance abuse and psychiatric disorders. Without family support, maintaining sobriety is significantly more difficult.
Addiction is considered a “family disease” and Texas Star offers education and support groups to family members of patients. Therapists can provide family therapy sessions in person or over the phone while your loved one is in treatment.
