Family Workbook | Addressing Addiction in the Home

We are excited to announce “Addressing Addiction in the Home” – a workbook for family members of those struggling with a substance use disorder.

This workbook has been several years in the making. For approximately a decade leading up to its publication, counselors at MARR have conducted a recurring one-day family seminar for families in the community. These sessions were designed to educate participants on the neurobiology of addiction, its effects on the family, enabling behaviors, and setting healthy boundaries. 

We’ve assembled the seminar materials and resources into this workbook, available for purchase through the MARR Store, where you can also find a detailed description of the book.

Family Podcast Episode

For a snippet of the material you’ll encounter in the workbook, tune in to episode 42 of MARR’s ‘Stories of Recovery’ Podcast. In “The Whole Family Can Recover,” we spoke with two parents who participated in our Family Program when they sent two of their sons to MARR at different times. They provide an excellent explanation of addiction as a family disease and how they continue to practice their own program of recovery.
