We understand how isolating it is when your loved one is struggling with addiction. Shame, confusion – even anger – are probably just some of what you're feeling.
These complex emotions make the process of getting good help very difficult.
Maybe you're struggling to be supportive while setting boundaries. Or feeling guilt, like you're somehow to blame.
Our coaching emphasizes evidence-based, non-confrontational approaches:
- Better understand the complex disease of addiction.
- Reduce conflict.
- Strengthen your own well-being.
- Improve communication.
- Learn how to model and encourage change.
- Establish healthy boundaries.
- Motivate your loved one toward change.
- Enhance your quality of life.
"It wasn't until we found Face It TOGETHER that we felt real hope. We finally felt we had the right resources and support to help our loved one. We learned how to cope with the nightmare we were living in and we started to see a change in our son for the first time in many years."
