A New Outlook For Families Coping With Addiction
Our leading edge New Dawn Family Healing program educates and empowers family members, friends and community members. We provide the tools you need to bring recovery principles and behaviours into the family or community system.
All addiction shares the common element of compulsive behaviours that continue despite repeated negative consequences. This applies to substance use as well as process addictions, such as eating disorders, gambling, shopping addiction, relationship addiction and sex addiction.
Being in relationship with someone in active addiction can be incredibly frustrating, painful and frightening. Often you experience the consequences more acutely than the person with the addiction. Our experience has taught us that implementing change within the family, workplace or community makes a significant impact.
Our professional, facilitated group program provides you with evidence-based education and practical tools for living. In a compassionate group setting, you’ll be encouraged to explore how you’ve unwittingly developed behaviours that keep you stuck in a traumatic response. A behaviour that has been described as codependency and that actually feeds the additive cycle.
Many people are surprised to discover there are predictable patterns of behaviour that emerge for those in relationship to someone with an addiction. It’s often difficult to recognize the behaviours you’ve developed that are causing you harm. You become convinced that if the person with the addiction would change, you’d be well.
New Dawn Family Healing provides the opportunity to shift your perspectives and have a new outlook on life. Participants report a renewed interest in their own lives, relief to be in community and insights that completely shift their perspectives.
Your wellness is the focus. You can be well, regardless of whether or not the person with addiction is in recovery. Let us show you how.
