Family Recovery from addiction is a miracle.

Families forgive when the effort is shown to be lasting over time and the behavior is consistently spiritually motivated. Families, once destroyed by addiction,  are usually better off than if the harm had never been done.

There is nothing better than a reunited family. Bonds become a blessing for all.

I have seen families, once destroyed by addiction, become reunited with love and forgiveness once the change becomes trusted. They are perhaps better off than if the harm had never been done. The rebirth gives meaning to the rejections of the past. The awful past becomes their greatest asset.

Do not give up hope nor be afraid to come back and make amends for harm done. You have nothing to lose but pride. Losing pride is freeing.

Peace and Love,

Doc Pete

Intervene now or let addiction take over.

When you become educated with accurate information about your loved one's addiction problem, you will be able to choose between continued efforts to help him or her or using the guidance of a trained professional to coach you.  I recommend the latter.

We, as therapists, have had good results when the family gives us permission to be the therapist and we all work as a team.
