Why You Need the BALM Specialist Training Program To Help You Work with Families Facing a Loved One’s SUD
The family plays an important role in each of the members’ health. They can be very helpful in determining the course of their loved one’s substance use disorder and ultimate recovery.
Family interventions have been found to be very helpful in the management of various disorders including substance use disorder. Illnesses and disorders exist in a social context and the most important source of support is the family.
How do you show your support to a loved one with SUD?
- Educating yourself more about addiction and recovery.
- Setting healthy boundaries.
- Encouraging your loved one to join and be in treatment.
- Minimizing the temptations and triggers in the environment
Many family members yearn to help their loved one AND other family’s loved ones as well!
But what can be a better way to help families help their loved one with SUD? Undergo an SUD specialist training program! Being available and helpful to your family member is one thing, becoming a specialist brings your support and love to another level.
As a specialist, you will help families recognize the inner connection you have with your loved one without shame, blame, expectation or guilt. You’ll help families figure out how to contribute to a loved one’s recovery while attending to their own recovery.
Families will learn how to be a valuable presence in their loved one’s life who helps rather than enable, love rather than condemn and use leverage rather than be controlling.
