Term Definition
Faith-Based Recovery
  Faith-Based Recovery is the resolution of alcohol and other drug problems within the framework of religious experience, beliefs, and rituals and within the mutual support of a faith community. Faith-based recovery frameworks may serve as adjuncts to traditional recovery support programs or serve as alternatives to such programs.  
Family
  Family is the inner social network that surrounds the individual experiencing alcohol or other drug problems. In most recovery circles, family is defined more by function than by blood.  
Family Illness
  Family Illness refers to the way in which all members of the family and the family unit as a whole are wounded by the addiction of one of its members.  
Family Recovery
  Family Recovery has three dimensions: the healing of individual family members, the healing of family subsystems (adult intimacy needs, parent-child relationships, and sibling relationships), and achieving recovery-conducive boundary transactions with people and institutions outside the family. While the order in which these subsystems heal can vary, family research (Brown and Lewis, 1999) suggests that individual recovery of family members must precede the recovery of the family as a unit (see Trauma of Recovery). Beginning with the founding of Al-Anon in 1951, many recovery mutual aid societies have developed parallel societies to facilitate the recovery of family members impacted by addiction to alcohol and other drugs.  
Family-Centered Care
  Family-Centered Care refers to a treatment philosophy in which the family, rather than the individual, is the primary “client.” Such philosophies are usually implemented by offering family members clinical services that focus on their problems and needs and offering a continuum of pre-treatment, treatment, and recovery support services.
