Addiction Harm Not Isolated to the Addict
| Alcohol and drug addiction can destroy all areas of a person’s life. The destruction also seriously impacts the lives of family and loved ones.
Addiction can create long-lasting damage to family dynamics if not addressed quickly. A person who is addicted to drugs will not stop to think about or reflect on their actions. The addicted person will not think about choices or the consequences that may come along with them. This unfortunately causes trauma in personal relationships and often leaves families bearing the weight.
But how exactly is the family affected?
It is not cheap to feed the habit, whether the addiction is drugs or alcohol.
Most addicts will use every bit of their money to score more drugs or alcohol. Addiction will interfere with functioning in the workplace and can lead to dismissal. Once the income of an addict is taken away, they will reach out to those closest to them.
Family will often be the first source of income after an addict becomes unemployed. After all, families do not want to see their own blood relatives suffer. However, what could be seen as helping a loved one get back on his or her feet – can actually end up going directly to drugs and alcohol.
Many families have lost homes, retirement funds, and entire life savings from giving addicted family members money. As a family it is important to recognize when a loved one has a problem and consider alcohol and drug rehab.
An addict’s time and energy is devoted to only feeding the habit. The remaining time, if any, is extremely miniscule for family and personal relationships. The lack of time spent with family and loved ones will completely destroy relationships.
Family members will feel a wide range of emotions from bitterness to sadness and can even cause deeper emotional problems like depression and anxiety. New Start Recovery Solutions offers intervention as a start to alcohol and drug rehab in Northern California.

Elements of an Effective Dual Diagnosis Addiction Treatment Plan
Treatment planning will not be the same for everyone. Below, some of the common methods used as part of our addiction treatment plans.
Detox – Don’t let the fear of withdrawal keep you trapped in addiction. The compassionate staff from New Start Recovery Solutions helps you regain control of your life with access to our alcohol and drug detox programs. We currently offer alcohol and drug rehab in San Jose, Sacramento, East Bay, and Walnut Creek.
Inpatient Addiction Treatment – Evidence-based addiction treatments, holistic therapies, and over 20 years of experience within a safe and supportive environment
Supportive Housing – Group homes or sober houses.
Psychotherapy is usually a large part of an effective dual diagnosis treatment plan. In particular, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) helps people with dual diagnosis learn how to cope and change ineffective patterns of thinking, which may increase the risk of substance use.
Medications are often useful for treating mental illnesses and addiction (dual diagnosis). And certain medications can help ease withdrawal symptoms during the detoxification process and promote recovery.
Self-Help and Support Groups. Dealing with a dual diagnosis can feel challenging and isolating. Support groups allow members to share frustrations, celebrate successes, find referrals for specialists, find the best community resources and swap recovery tips. Support groups also provide a space for forming healthy friendships filled with encouragement to stay clean.
