If you or someone you know has experienced firsthand the devastating effects of a loved one’s drug and/or alcohol addiction, sign up for our next 1-Day Family Seminar, “Loving Someone with Addiction,” today. Take the first step in your own recovery process – a new life awaits.

Most people will agree that addiction causes family problems, but many families have a difficult time accepting that it is a family disease. “If only he would stop drinking, everything would be fine,” or “we are great when she’s not using” are common beliefs among family members of addicts. Substance abuse impacts the entire family unit, and family recovery is necessary to change old patterns and behaviors. While our Family Recovery Center is committed to the recovery of our clients and their families, we are dedicated to educating the community at large. Millions of families are struggling with the disease of addiction and we want to offer hope to the seemingly hopeless. MARR’s 1-Day Family Seminar, “Loving Someone with Addiction,” not only provides participants with a wealth of information about addiction and recovery, but also confirms they are not alone. There is a solution to the family problems caused by chemical dependency. Designed for family members and friends who have been impacted by a loved one’s addiction, the 1-Day Family Seminar includes presentations on the following topics:

    • The Disease of Addiction – Covers the various theories of addiction and provides an understanding of addictive thinking, as well as the difference between substance abuse and dependence.


    • Addiction, A Family Disease – Describes the symptoms and behaviors of addiction and how they create family problems and impact family members.


    • Enabling, Rescuing and Controlling – Teaches how to recognize behaviors used by family members as a result of a loved one’s addiction and how to identify new, healthy behaviors.


    • Identifying and Establishing Personal Boundaries – Teaches how to establish and maintain healthy boundaries as a primary tool to detach from addictive behaviors, while continuing to maintain a loving relationship with the addict.


    • Creating a Support System – Teaches family members how to create support for themselves and practice healthy self-care.
