As a family member of a person with a substance use disorder, you may or may not live with your loved one. However, you are likely one of the people closest and most important to them. Addiction is not the fault of you, your family, or your loved one. We also acknowledge that addiction can run in families. It can be hard to know what to do when a loved one has an addiction. Without the right guidance, loved ones may jump to anger, act in a way that enables addiction, or encounter another concern.
The truth is that every family has a unique story. Prevail Recovery Center is here to gain an understanding of your family’s circumstances and help you navigate them appropriately. Including family in outpatient addiction treatment ensures that a client has a strong support system outside of treatment headquarters and can help family members feel confident about how to best support their loved one with an addiction. Family can also help clients find and plan for treatment.
We own sober living, also called supportive housing, facilities near our outpatient addiction treatment facilities in New Jersey. Sober living is much like an apartment with a standard rental agreement in the sense that it provides a sense of autonomy and independence, but it also becomes a community because every resident is sober.
Some clients who get addiction treatment in New Jersey may live out of town or out of state, so it is not uncommon for clients to reside in sober living facilities for the duration of their program(s) at Prevail Recovery Centers at least.
However, you don’t need to be in a treatment program to reside in sober living. Many people live in or continue living in supportive housing post-treatment to aid continued sobriety.
Dual diagnosis care
The term “dual diagnosis” indicates the presence of a substance use disorder and one or more additional mental health conditions. For example, a person with a substance use disorder may also have depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or a trauma-related disorder.
We have dual diagnosis treatment for clients who live with a substance use disorder and one or more additional mental health conditions. Often, this encourages prolonged recovery because it tends to a client’s full spectrum of mental health needs.
We use an extensive range of evidence-based treatments and supplementary activities, including multiple therapeutic modalities. If you’re interested in a specific treatment, kind of therapy, or activity and aren’t sure whether we offer it, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
