Bridging Recovery Home: The Role of the Client and Family SPEAKER: MARK KISNER, MSW, CADC-II
A family working together to combat addiction is a very powerful force. Alone many individuals struggle to gain and maintain sobriety. Addiction is a disease that requires more family education, support, and involvement than any other chronic disease. Education helps to empower the family and the individual to increase the benefits of treatment. Abstinence alone is not recovery. Recovery begins when the application of the information first learned in treatment becomes an active part of daily living skills. It is not the alcoholic alone who suffers; it is the whole family.
