Andrea Gillette, LMFT, LAADC, a well known New Existence clinician, is trying to inform the general public about how important it is to choose an addiction recovery center which works to reconnect families.
Most people have strong family bonds which make special celebration days and holidays with family, something to look forward to, and enjoy. Yet, as Gillette notes: “for many living with drug and alcohol addiction, these holidays are painful reminders of the children, siblings, and parents they are separated from. It feels like a black hole from which they can never emerge”.
Not long ago, researchers came across what they believed to be a black hole. However, on closer examination, they discovered elements inside it which implied that it may not be a black hole at all, but rather a passageway to another existence or dimension. – And this can be just the same for addicts who are going through recovery – as long as they attend a center which feels right for them.
Getting Over the Pitfalls
Gillette, states that: “One of the many pitfalls of addiction is the feeling that, no matter what, you can never escape being seen as an addict. This is similar to the cliché “once a cheater always a cheater”. This leaves little room or incentive for “recovery”. But anyone with an addiction has to think outside the box, and acknowledge the fact that so many addicts have turned their lives around for the better, and never looked back…
Selecting a Recovery Center that Addresses Family Reconnection
From Gillette’s perspective, the best incentive for patients transitioning through recovery, is the chance to be reunited with their families – their parents, their brothers and sisters, and their children. Speaking about New Existence, she says that: “Our organization considers it our responsibility to help clients to live a fulfilled sober life. A big part of being happy and balanced is having healthy relationships. Whether it be friends or family, we support and guide our clients and their families by fostering communication techniques and interpersonal skills in order to bring loved ones back together again”. She highlights the point that the organization concentrates on providing a groundwork for patients’ long lasting recovery, and says it is mindful that a huge part of that, is the strong support systems it puts into place.
