When in solid recovery mode my first year, I found an amazing revelation. I did not have to go back to that HELL ON EARTH no matter what. That's not luck. That's GOD!

When properly directed, the family of the addict/alcoholic creates acceptance instead of resistance.

 

The family is the motivator. The secret to successful addiction recovery is to motivate the addict/alcoholic to desire help.

Love and Peace,

Sobriety is the center of life for an addict and/or alcoholic.

 

All else revolves around my Program. Sober and clean, all is possible. When anesthetized from reality, I have a problem I can't solve.

Love and Inner Peace,

Families with addiction - Helpful Guide.

 

The family that has been torn apart by addiction has much to repair. First, there is forgiveness for the harm done and a commitment to let go of anger, fears, despair, hopelessness, powerlessness and grief. This takes a long time. There is no magic cure. Let go via therapy efforts and direction or there is danger of displacing the anger on others. Let the therapist have a say in the family's healing or nothing will happen.

Best Wishes,                                                           Dr. Peter A. Butkins
