HOW TO HELP
Alcoholism, addiction, anxiety, depression, and PTSD that accompany trauma are not only confusing for those who suffer from them, but also for family members and loved ones who want to help but don’t know how. The knot of thoughts, feelings, and emotions are difficult to untangle. You may not know where to start or what to do.
A website can only communicate so much. If you are worried about a loved one and want to know more about how Sabino Recovery may be able to help, please call and speak with one of our Intake Advisors. Sometimes it’s just good to know that hope is out there and help is available.
If you are concerned about your loved one seeking treatment or committing to recovery, you may want to consider an intervention. Many people who are actively abusing drugs or alcohol, or struggling with mental health issues, have lost the ability to determine if their behavior is normal and acceptable. This causes the loved ones to minimize or deny the issue completely. Whether a person is suffering from alcoholism, addiction, or trauma, the denial can be the same. Organizing the family around a united goal of recovery is in some cases the only way to break through the patterns of denial and deceit.

In this video, Family Therapist Robin Memel-Fox discusses the Family Program
At Sabino Recovery we understand that lasting recovery for our residents depends on the involvement of those closest to them. We invite each resident and their families to participate in our Family Program – a three-day, experiential program designed reconnect you with your loved one.
Our family program has been developed to provide family members the opportunity to gain insight into their family’s dynamics, and to support the honest and effective communication of fears, pain, and hope in a safe environment.
The family program is both educational and psychodynamic. It supports you in sharing thoughts and feelings with your loved one in an honest and non-judgmental way. The program includes education about family systems as well as techniques you and your family members can use to communicate more effectively.
We emphasize not assigning blame to anyone during this time but rather encourage discovery and compassionate understanding of each other through safely guided exercises.
Our experience has shown that when family members experience each other with a compassionate understanding they are able to break communication and relationship patterns that have lasted for years.
