Albion. MI (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
Narconon Freedom Center again helps addicts reunite with their families over a huge Thanksgiving Feast. The alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility understands how important reuniting family is to the recovery process of those struggling with addiction.
This year’s Thanksgiving Feast menu consisted of turkey with all the fixings and a large buffet of desserts that included Pumpkin Pie. Families were encouraged to bring any special dishes that their loved one might enjoy which are part of their individual traditions.
“This may be the first holiday in years that families have been able to spend with their loved one sober and in a safe environment. It’s very gratifying to see these families reunited and having hope for the first time that they will be able to spend many more holidays with their loved one sober and happy,” said Brian Kuehne, Executive Director of Narconon Freedom Center Michigan.
Families expressed thanks that their loved ones who had been struggling with addiction are now on the road to recovery. “I am so thankful my son is here and has decided to make this change,” said one mother of student J.L.
“I am so happy that my son is alive and I am so thankful to have a place to be with him this year,” said the mother of student R.P.
Holidays are an extremely stressful time for addicts and can often trigger increased drug use and overdose leading to death. Families of addicts often spend the holidays in fear for their loved one’s life wondering where they are and what they are doing.
“This is the most vital time of year to get your loved one into rehab. It could save their life,” said Kuehne.
