Addiction Is a Family Disease
Addiction Is a Family Disease

You started using meth at age 9 when your dad shot you up for the first time. It’s an awful depiction of drug addiction and the family, but not that far from the truth. Drugs will cause you to think and behave in ways that go against your morals and values. This is how a father became warped enough to introduce drugs into his kid’s system. If you are a parent, sibling or child and recognize drug addiction and the family problems that it has created, call Recovery Connection at 866-812-8231 and find out how to get your loved one into drug rehab today!

The Parent Trap

“I’ll never be like my parents,” are famous last words for many people. The fact is somehow you end up just like your parents, but in a different way. Dad was an alcoholic so you decide to just use heroin…it’s not alcohol right, so it’s different. This is not true. Addiction is a family disease and the substance of choice makes no difference.

Family Patterns of Drug Addiction Include:

  • Lying
  • Denial
  • Hiding
  • Betrayal
  • Hurt
  • Manipulation
  • Doubt
  • Abuse

Every single family member is negatively affected when there is an addicted family member. A drug rehab center that offers a family program can address these issues helping families heal. We can help you find the right addiction treatment center to help you get your family back. Call us today at 866-812-8231.

I Am Not Hurting Anyone with My Addiction

You may think that you aren’t hurting anyone but yourself, but this is not true. Alcohol and drug addiction have an indirect impact on non-using family members. History has a pattern of repeating itself, especially in addicted families. Both nature and nurture are part of the development of addiction. Having an addicted parent increased your chances of becoming an addict yourself, and the same is true of your children. You can stop this cycle.

A qualified drug treatment program that offers a family program can provide education and recommendations to help the whole family get better. You need to understand that your alcohol and drug addiction leaves a wake of destruction and affects others.

Ending the Family Curse of Drug Addiction

Stop struggling with addiction. It is having a negative impact on you and your family. You can prevent this addiction pattern from continuing to plague your family. Going to drug rehab and finding recovery can help you stop the pattern once and for all.

Going to drug rehab may also help model healthy behaviors for those family members who are also struggling with addiction. Call us at 866-812-8231 and learn how going to treatment can help you and your family today!
