Family Support

Families feel the pain of addiction too. 

Addiction is a family disease and recovery from addiction is about healing for the whole family.

It’s normal for parents, siblings and friends of alcoholics and addicts to feel confused, angry, and helpless. The everyday stress of living with addiction takes a toll on all family members—physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.

You can’t control your loved one’s addiction, but you can take responsibility for your own health and happiness.


YouTurn House offers family and friends:

  • Individual counselling
  • Group sessions
  • Family fellowship meetings

The above will provide support that will help you identify the different ways that your loved one’s addiction has affected you and your family and you will be able to learn skills that you can use to take care of yourself.

You will learn that:

  • You didn’t cause the addiction
  • You can’t control the addiction
  • You can’t cure the addiction

By becoming aware of the beliefs and experiences that have shaped your own behaviours you will identify new, healthy ways of coping with addiction and relating with your addicted loved one and other family members.
