Family of a Patient?
We want you to know that you are not alone.
Whether directly or indirectly, we all know someone affected by drugs.
If you are visiting our website today, it is because that “someone” is very special to you and you are concerned for their health and well-being.
Maybe it’s your son or daughter. It could be your spouse. Maybe it’s a good friend or a co-worker.
Drug abuse and addiction is the social issue of our time and it may have become an issue for someone you love.
The good news is that you don’t have to negotiate the difficult times by yourself. Reach Recovery Centers can help when you don’t know what to do next. We will guide you on what steps you can take to help someone you love overcome an addiction to drugs.
We want you to know that we understand that someone may want to stop using drugs, but can’t. We want you to know that there IS a way out. We understand and we care. We have a working knowledge of addiction and we’re not just substituting one drug for another. We work with each patient not only on a medical level, but also on a psychological and spiritual level as well, and we believe you are a vital part of the healing process.
Families are welcome to join patients. We also offer a play area for kids. There may be exceptions when your provider needs to speak with you alone, and we need your permission before family members may accompany you in the exam room.
Addiction is a family disease. At Reach Recovery Center, we understand the heartache you have endured as result.
However, it is important for family members and loved ones to understand that you did not cause the addiction, you cannot control it,and you cannot cure it.
Addiction is also a brain disease. Your loved one is NOT a bad person, but is a sick person.
Our commitment to you and your family is that we will do everything we can to help your family member find the path to recovery.
At RRC, we treat each person with kindness, dignity, and respect.
