Alcohol or drug addiction, along with compulsive gambling and other addictions, are certainly very hard on the person in question, but they is also very difficult on those around them. For anyone in a committed relationship, it puts a strain on things and there is a real risk of splitting as a result. If nothing else, there is additional stress and often lack of communication. And entire families, including parents and children and siblings are impacted in many instances. Here at Mars & Venus, our addiction counseling Ramsey is based on the premise that there is a greater opportunity for good outcomes when these personal and family relationships are taken into account as part of treatment.
The one thing that is certain, and that is a prerequisite, is that the addict must be the one to seek out our addiction counseling Ramsey. It will never work if a spouse, partner, or family member attempts to guilt or otherwise force the person with the addiction into treatment. And because it is so often true that having an addiction of any sort contains, as part of it, a shroud of secrecy and dishonesty, there is significant benefit to coming in and being able to express yourself fully, whether you are the one with the addiction or you are close to the person who has one. Everyone should be honest about how they feel. Our counselor will listen and offer guidance. The types of habits that form from such addictions can be challenging to break, and every bit of help is vital to the chances for success. Fortunately, with the help and support of loved ones, our addiction counseling in Ramsey is likely to be much more effective than it would otherwise.
There is much to gain by calling our office and arranging an appointment. Do so right now. Addiction can be overcome.
