Augusta, GA (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Steppingstones to Recovery will host Wednesday family workshops each week from 7-8:15 p.m. These workshops will focus on bringing in the family to help a member who is struggling with addiction. The idea of the workshops is that a client has a better chance of getting well if the entire family is well.
Steppingstones to Recovery wants to promote a healthy family. Their patients often come from difficult or unstable family backgrounds. Steppingstones believes the client has much less chance of maintaining quality sobriety if the family unit is not healthy. Steppingstones emphasizes group support as the best method for recovery.
On a monthly basis, Steppingstones to Recovery teaches “How to Do an Intervention.” Often, family members attend for several months before they are emotionally prepared to do an intervention.
Steppingstones to Recovery wants patients and family members to know that what they see on TV is usually different from actual interventions. The interventions on TV demonstrate a lot of drama and are not necessarily the way to go about doing one.
It is not true that addicts or alcoholics have to wait to “bottom out” before they are ready to enter treatment. Steppingstones to Recovery estimates that 95 percent of all patients in treatment are there because they were forced to come by family, friends, employers or the legal system. Usually a client moves from “extrinsic” motivation to “intrinsic” motivation within a few weeks of enrolling in treatment.
