Why Family Recovery Matters More Than Ever

Why Family Recovery Matters More Than Ever

The COVID -19 pandemic has obscured the rising addiction epidemic. If you are supporting a loved one struggling with addiction today, this is the workshop for you.

Let me tell you a story of why the Being True To You Family Recovery Workshop matters.

Four months ago, I got a call from my sister on a Friday night: mom was in the hospital with a punctured eye, broken nose and eye socket. I had a long conversation that night with my mother. She cried and told me she was afraid. Zero mention of alcohol. We then discovered that my mom had been in and out of hospitals due to falls from blacking out after drinking. No one knew. We thought losing her eye would be the turning point. We were wrong.

Since, I have picked my mom up from the street, passed out, at 11am. I shuffled her 5 pieces of luggage wherever she went. I offered to pay for a sober living then watched as the day she got out of rehab, she went directly to a hotel to drink. I called the ER after finding her in a pile of feces, food rotting on the floor. I spent my mother ’s birthday wondering if she was alive. Trying to ‘rescue ’ my mom came at a heavy cost: I lost my job, my accommodation, my Airbnb account, and my car directly due to my mom. Through it all, I was racked with guilt: what if I had called more often, been kinder, wiser, more understanding, more patient, less angry? Maybe then she would want to get better.

Who does this concern?

This description will sound disturbing to some, and familiar to an increasing number of others. Since June 2020, 13% of Americans started or increased their substance use to cope with the pandemic. Overall alcohol consumption rose by 23% since the pandemic and heavy drinking rose by 41% amongst women (HealthLine). My mother is one of these women. I am fortunate though: my mom is still alive. Others are not so fortunate. The death rate from drug overdoses leaped nearly 30% in 2020 – the highest ever recorded in the US.

It ’s important to remember that you have options – and Being True To You ’s Family Recovery Workshop is unique in that they offer direct support to the family. How many programs help not only the addicted individual but the support network as well? The Family Recovery Workshop helps you understand the addictive mindset and develop your ability to support your loved one whilst maintaining your sanity and boundaries. More importantly, you’ll encounter a tribe of people who have experienced the despair that comes from watching someone you love self-destruct but grow from it in ways to transform themselves as well as their whole family.

So what is the Family Recovery Workshop?

COVID-19 and addiction are the two pandemics which are on the verge of collision causing major public health threat.

What makes Being True To You so different?

Being True to You stands out from all other recovery programs out there. They approach addiction not as a curse but as an opportunity. An opportunity for deep reflection, growth, healing, and transformation for the whole family unit. As Being True To You emphasizes, “Family plays a key role in the recovery process. Positive changes in the family dynamic initiate positive changes for each individual. It starts with one person in the family saying “YES” to doing the work.”

Here is what some of those who said “YES” say about the program:

I found Being True To You for my daughter suffering from an addiction. But in the end, I feel it was our family s transformation of love and compassion that the Being True To You family encouraged and nurtured. Helping us evolve from where we had been stuck for 13 years.

I joined Being True To You s Family Recovery Workshop and that allowed myself and other families to share their stories in a Safe Environment with no judgment… It s programs like Being True To You s that need to show to the world that this is the way of the future to help with families/loved ones and give them another Holistic alternative for addiction and recovery.
