The Family Spiral

About This Series

Addiction is a bio-psycho-social disorder that affects the entire family. For every individual affected with this disorder, there are a minimum of 5 other people who are affected emotionally, physically, mentally, financially, socially and spiritually - in most cases, family members. Many people in recovery from substance use or behavioural use disorders speak to the “cunning, powerful and baffling” impacts on their lives.

This two-part interactive session will address the following questions: What is addiction? How does someone become addicted? What are the physical, emotional and spiritual effects on the individual with substance use and/or behavioural use disorders? What is the impact on the family?

This is a 2-evening program for family members, friends and support persons who are concerned about someone with a substance use, behavioural addiction or mental health issue.

Family Spiral Series: Offered by Rideauwood's Family and Parent Counsellors and Living Potential.
