Family Reconciliation after AddictionAlmost every Anchorage addict has a family that loves her and feels many of the addiction’s negative effects as much as the addict does. When the person decides to get help for her addiction, she may look to family members for support and help. While many Anchorage families will encourage and promote addiction recovery, most will also have to deal with the problems that developed from the addiction. Dealing with these financial and relational problems between the recovering addict and her family is the most effective way to restore positive familial bonds and create peace within a family. Families can get past the pain of addiction, and we can help.

Dealing with Family Financial Problems after Addiction

Some Anchorage addicts find themselves compromising their family’s financial well-being in order to satisfy the addiction. They may steal money from loved ones or lie about purchases and income. Financial strains can also occur when family members respond to the addiction by cutting off funding to the addict. Once the addict begins addiction treatment and recovery, it’s essential that the family come together to address its financial situation related to the addiction, as well as ways that family members can improve and remedy any negative financial situations.

Dealing with Family Problems in Anchorage after Addiction

The most important aspect of family reconciliation after addiction is healing the family’s relationship to the recovering addict. This means that each individual family member will need to sit down with the recovering addict and discuss the aspects of their relationship that have been damaged because of the addiction. Honesty, tact, and forgiveness are essential in these conversations, as the ultimate goal should be reconciliation. Anchorage families might consider having these conversations with a trained addiction or family counselor who can mediate the discussion and keep each person focused on the goals of the conversation.
