Family SUD Recovery in a Box – Helping You Give Families What They Need

BALM | June 1, 2020

The BALM Family Recovery Specialist Program

Everyday, another family is hit with the trauma of having a loved one with substance use or mental health-related disorder.

The process of figuring out what is actually going on is often slow and confusing. Family members are seeing things that don’t make sense, they say what they see and the loved one denies it. Or they are too confused to say what they see because it doesn’t match the person they thought they knew…

If you went through this yourself, you may recall that feeling of falling into a vortex and feeling like you are going deeper and deeper into a hole, unable to get out or even figure out what on earth is happening to your loved one and/or your family…

So now, you dear reader, have come out the other side and you want to help those families:

  • You want them to know about leverage, about what to say and what not to say.
  • You want to help them learn the difference between healthy and unhealthy boundaries
  • You want them to understand that their role is SO important – that they can be extremely helpful or harmful – but only as contributors to recovery or addiction – NOT as the cause of whatever is going on with their loved one!

You learned these things either through your own experience as a family member or as the person in recovery whose parents or spouse really helped or hurt YOUR process…And you want to save others from making the mistakes made in your situation.

The challenge you may be facing, regardless of how well educated you are, is that you need an organized way to share it all and you don’t have one…Plus, your approach of love and connection is not widely represented in family recovery curricula that you have found.

So, what do you do?

There are so many approaches out there, but few structured curricula put into a turnkey course that you can choose to teach online or in person, one that covers just about everything you want to share with families without your having to reinvent the wheel or spend hours on preparation.

Enter the BALM (Be A Loving Mirror) Family Recovery Specialist program. An affordable family recovery facilitator preparation and certification course, this program will provide you with the words, ideas and expertise you need to bring families from chaos to peace.

If you are looking for a way to help families move ahead in their recovery with as little delay as possible, without having to create a program yourself, add this certification to your repertoire and move your practice forward in a powerful, loving way!
