What Should Loved Ones Know

About Addiction and Recovery?

If a family member or another loved one of yours lives with a substance use disorder or could be, the first thing you should know is that you aren’t alone. 16.5% of the United States population ages 12 or older had met the diagnostic criteria for a substance use disorder at some point in the past year in 2021. An even more significant percentage used illicit drugs. Out of those who met the criteria for a substance use disorder, a whopping 94% didn’t get help. 

Treatment is associated with better short and long-term outcomes for those with substance use disorders. While your loved one may not realize they need help right now, treatment matters. Families and loved ones must realize that, while there’s no quick fix for addiction, recovery is possible. Learning about addiction and how to support your loved one while holding them accountable when due matters.

Many loved ones and families of those with substance use disorders don’t have adequate education on substance abuse or how to support a loved one best. You may not know how to talk about addiction with young children in your family when a loved one enters treatment or how to navigate conversations and boundaries with your loved one with a substance use disorder. Of course, these are just two common examples of challenges that arise for families and loved ones affected by addiction. 

When treatment centers emphasize the involvement of family members and loved ones, it helps families and loved ones of those with substance use disorders feel more confident about approaching certain topics, feelings, challenges, or events. That is why Multi Concept Recovery makes it a point to involve family. Not only is support from loved ones a potential predictor of better outcomes for people with substance use disorders, but getting involved can help you as a family member or loved one. 

We can help your family prepare for and get through treatment. Additionally, every client we work with gets a relapse prevention plan to help them stay sober after their treatment program ends. You’ll most likely be involved in that relapse prevention plan and will be an imperative member of your loved ones’ support system.

    Our Unique Tracks for Treating Addiction

    We believe clients are best served by participating in and choosing their own path to recovery. Multi-Concept Recovery has created a multi-track treatment community offering the following paths:

    Traditional Treatment Track

    This program offers a variety of traditional evidence-based treatment modalities including but not limited to; Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), 12 Step & Non-12 Step Program Education, Medication Assisted Therapy, etc. All participants are encouraged to seek outside support groups and create a community of recovery to ensure long-term success. We know from various studies and years of experience, that those who utilize an outside support group/program of recovery alongside evidenced-based therapies are more likely to remain in long-term recovery.

    Emotional Intelligence & Mindfulness

    Emotional intelligence is one of the many bi-products of regular mindfulness practice, this program helps clients identify emotions, access emotions, understand emotions and manage emotions. The long-term skills our clients develop include being able to choose what they become emotional over and when, how they behave, or respond when they have become emotional and increase the gap between stimulus and response by developing and maintaining a regular Mindfulness Practice. All the groups in the EI program have mindfulness at the core of them and either begin or end with meditation.

    National and Educational Resources For Families of Addicts

    It’s important to break misconceptions surrounding addiction. Here are a couple of national and educational resources for families of addicts that can help. 


    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is a well-known and trusted organization with a range of resources dedicated to the loved ones of those who have or may have a substance use disorder. These include but aren’t limited to basic education and information about substance abuse and mental health, a conversation guide designed to help families start talking about substance abuse, a family support guide, and a free 24/7 hotline. 

    National Association for Children of Addiction

    The National Association for Children of Addiction (NACoA) is an organization with a mission to eliminate the impact of drug and alcohol use on children and families. The NACoA website has age-appropriate resources for kids, teens, and adult children of those with a substance use disorder. There are also resources for concerned parents and family or friends of those experiencing addiction.

    Local Services and Support Groups

    Rehab Resources for Families of Addicts

    Local resources matter because they are able to connect you with services and other people in your area. Here are some to consider. 

    The Family Support Group at Multi Concept Recovery

    Our family support group is an excellent local resource for families with a loved one undergoing a treatment program at Multi Concept Recovery. If you have a loved one in treatment at Multi Concept Recovery, you’ll have the option to both participate in family therapy sessions with your loved one and attend our family support night with other family members of those in our programs. 


    Al-Anon is a support program with local chapters for those affected by someone else’s addiction to alcohol, such as a friend or family member of a person with alcohol use disorder. There’s also Alateen, a program specific to teenagers affected by someone else’s addiction to alcohol. 


    Nar-Anon is a similar group to Al-Anon. It is a group with local chapters for those affected by someone else’s drug addiction. There’s also Narateen, which is for teenagers affected by someone else’s addiction.

    Drug and alcohol rehab is a life-saving resource for people with substance use disorders. Getting treatment at Multi Concept Recovery means that individuals and their loved ones will have support every step of the way throughout recovery. In our programs, clients work with medical and mental health staff to help their mind and body reach equilibrium, learn new coping skills, and address potential underlying or co-occurring mental health concerns through various therapies and treatments.

    We help people with substance use disorders heal and are dedicated to assisting whole families as they overcome the effects of addiction. In family therapy at our drug and alcohol rehab center, you can strengthen family bonds, work through the unique concerns or challenges your family faces, learn how to support your loved one, and more. Every family is unique. If you have any questions about family therapy or how you can help a loved one with addiction, please contact us for more information.

    Our Programs

    Let Multi Concept Recovery Help Your Family

    What to expect while your loved one is in treatment depends partially on their program or level of care. During the intake process, we assess each new client to help us understand their treatment needs. Then, your loved one will get an individualized treatment plan. Here are the levels of care available at Multi Concept Recovery and the role each one can play in helping people and their families with substance abuse and well-being.

    Partial Day Program

    Partial day programs are the highest level of outpatient treatment. Our partial day program provides extensive care during the day but lets clients return home at night to sleep. In our partial day program, clients may engage in a range of treatments, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Holistic Mindfulness, and Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT).

    Intensive Outpatient Program

    Intensive outpatient programs require a lower time commitment than partial day programs do. While many treatments and activities are the same, IOP can be ideal for those moving down from a higher level of care or fulfilling obligations like work or school while in treatment. 


    Outpatient care at Multi Concept Recovery is used to aid maintenance post-treatment. Clients can stay in outpatient specifically for as long as they desire. 

    Multi Concept Recovery works with teens, adults, and families to help them overcome substance abuse. We offer multiple program tracks, including traditional, dual diagnosis, non-12-step, and holistic approaches. To get in touch, call 1-866-653-7168 or fill out the contact form on our website.
