Family Issues for the Chemically Dependent
Early recovery can be a difficult transition period - for the person in recovery as well as family members. We need to learn to balance the demands of recovery with the demands of family life. Through dramatizations of three different family scenarios, this video vividly depicts the family issues we commonly face when we begin to recover.We learn how we can gain trust from family members, initiate honest and open communication, relearn family roles, set new and healthy boundaries, develop new coping techniques, and learn to forgive so that we may begin living a new life. Above all, this video emphasizes the importance of love, communication, and trust in keeping the family healthy.
