Treatment Residential: A Residential Treatment Center With Some Answers

Treatment Residential: When It Breaks Your Heart To Send Him To Rehab

Sending your husband or your son to treatment residential can be heart breaking. If it’s your son he may feel betrayed and say things to you that as a parent are hard to hear. Know that your child is behaving this way because they have a problem and they are scared. They may say that they hate you and that they’ll never forgive you for sending them. The truth is not all addicts go into rehab and become rehabilitated. Not all addicts go to rehab believe that they have a problem. Your son may tell you that you are overreacting. Tough love is hard. Sticking to your guns as a parent isn’t always easy but if you know in your gut this is right you have to see it through.

Residential Treatment Center: When Your Children Ask Where Is Daddy?

Your husband is at a residential treatment center. He’s been there for a few days and your children are asking: “Where is Daddy?” It’s normal to not know how to answer this question. As parents we want to shelter our children from the bad things that happen in the world. We don’t want them to feel pain a day in their lives. However, if your child is old enough to understand it’s good to open a dialogue with them about your husband’s addiction problem. Chances are they have some questions and some feelings that they need help dealing with.

Residential Treatment Program: Finding One That Works

Finding a residential treatment program that works isn’t as difficult as finding one that fits the type of personality that they addict has. Meaning, all rehabs have trained professionals in addiction. All rehabs know how to treat addiction but all rehabs have different approaches to addiction. Some are holistic, while others focus on religion and faith. It’s really about finding the one that you believe is the best for the addict and the type of person they are. Some people need to be coddled while other addicts need a harsher more in your face approach.
