Are you feeling overwhelmed and alone in dealing with a loved one’s addictive behaviours? At Turning Point, we understand that addiction is painful for family members, and that too often they are ignored in the healing process.
“I tell people that they must be good to themselves in order to help others,” says Tammy Francoeur, Turning Point co-founder. “If you don’t know how to swim, how you can save someone who is drowning?”
In addition to four hours of family assistance provided as part of the Turning Point program, family members have access to individual counseling as needed.
“Counseling can help at any stage of the process,” notes Tammy. “Quite often, family members find they need it most after their loved one has been through the program and is home on their road to recovery. Their loved one has had time to heal, time to learn to coping mechanisms. Family members need the same kind of support.”
