Private Coaching for anyone facing drug addiction & recovery in the family.
One member’s addiction often becomes an opportunity for the whole family to heal. Rather than put all the pressure on the addict that they have to heal and get better, you emphasize the healing of the whole family.
Recovery always is more effective when the whole family can heal in conjunction with the addicted member of the family. We all have to look at ourselves. We all have to compassionately consider how our family has carried forward suffering for generations. - Gabor Mate
People will think it's your fault, but it isn't!
You might be labeled a “bad parent, but you're not!
You'll want to isolate and continue to try and figure it out on your own, but you can't, anymore than your loved one can do it on their own.
So much is to be gained from reaching out and asking for help!
It is inaccurate that others/family members cannot change the behavior of the loved one with an addiction.
It's a myth that only the person with the addiction can change.
We understand that if you're looking to “force” another person to change, it can’t be done (at least not for long).
Those we serve can do coachingfrom the comfort of their own home.
Reclaim your power so you’re more capable of handling a loved one who is having difficulties.
You’ll get stronger while being coached. You’ll feel better about yourself. Your self-esteem will go up.
Your ability to handle difficult situations in a positive way is more likely to happen.
We will help you develop a family recovery plan, one that will keep a loved one in recovery for the long term!
Fair warning, this process will not appeal to the parent/family seeking a "quick fix".
Recovery is hard work.
However, I have observed that anyone with a genuine commitment to learn can be very successful.
"How a family operates isn't the primary focus of treatment programs, because the child is the identified client....” Excerpt From: Krissy Pozatek. “The Parallel Process.”
I suggest that treatment is not living up to its potential because it refuses to stop treating individuals and instead start assertively and extensively collaborating with families as the default approach. Currently 90% of family/social resources go to an individual.
Who benefits from family recovery?
Family members of loved ones in pre-hab, residential treatment, IOP, aftercare, sober living or therapy
Spouses, children and siblings of addicts
Parents of adolescents
Anyone concerned about a friend or loved one
Chris Lutz, recovering parent To have someone in your corner, both for the recovering addict and also the rest of the family is invaluable! Tim Harrington comes to the table with life experience, knowledge, and great communication skills.
He is a great sounding board, a thought provoking resource, a guide and a mentor. He invites us to think some new thoughts and learn some new behaviors. He challenges both our son and our family to create a NEW beginning and allow time to show that it works. It was amazing to have someone who finally understood my feelings of desperation and not knowing what to do next.
Through this journey he encourages, has empathy and yet won’t leave you “stranded”. You feel empowered to be proactive and learn from someone who has already “ been there...done that”.
I appreciate the times he’s spent working with us as a team to rebuild the lost time we’ve had as a family and to see our son flourish and grow. He reminds us of how far we’ve come and the reasons to stay focused.
His resources are great! I know that having Tim as our coach has been pivotal on this journey OUT of addiction and it’s hold on our family. Thanks Tim for your dedication. We appreciate you very much!
NOTE: There is no quick fix to maintaining any kind of behavior change; new skills, practice, patience, persistence and ongoing care and support are needed for the long haul.
