Marriage and Family Participation
How will recovery fit in with my loved ones?
Addiction compromises all family members. Our loved ones suffer from and contribute to the problem in a variety of devious ways. Marin Drug Recovery believes it is essential that family members are included in the treatment for the greatest chance of overall success.Frequently the addict has concealed their drug use from family members, but not the accompanying devastation. Marriages and families often suffer greatly as a result of drugs and alcohol and rebuilding the lost trust, respect and intimacy is a vital path to recovery. For this reason we strongly encourage family and marital participation.
