Supporting Your Newly Recovering Alcoholic Family Member
Email a Request for the Full Preview of this Program
This program helps employees and family members of newly recovering addicts and alcoholics play the critical and powerful roles they have as non-enabling, supportive cheerleaders for the addict.
When family members remain uneducated about recovery and their role in it, they frequently do all the wrong things although these things may be well-intentioned. There behaviors may undermine the addict or recovering alcoholic, provoke relapse, and it can all end affect worker productivity.
Family members of newly recovering employees often do not participate in family counseling programs and they may also not receive any follow up from addiction treatment programs, which are notoriously neglectful in this area. This program helps bridge this knowledge gap to prevent loss to the organization from affected family members.
