How a Recovering Addict Can Heal

Recovery isn't something that happens overnight. It doesn't even happen with some time in rehab. The idea that your loved ones can change long-term patterns of addiction after 30 or 60 days of treatment is pretty unrealistic. Likewise, the idea that we can change long-term reactive and destructive patterns after attending one or two recovery meetings or process groups is unrealistic. The Renaissance Outpatient Family programs in Sandy include weekly education classes and therapy for the family, a 12-step family support program, and our regular workshops. Addiction doesn’t just affect the addicted individual, it affects everyone that is close to them. That's why Renaissance Ranch decided to include the family in the healing process by treating the entire family. Not just the addict.
