Long-Term Recovery Improves With Family Involvement

A year ago, when Nicole Sartore-Babuin was asked to set up a family program at Gray Wolf Ranch, no one could have predicted the program’s impact. Today, family involvement and family healing have become hallmarks of recovery success for Gray Wolf residents working hard to build new lives without substance misuse.

“When a client is admitted,” says Nicole, “I call the family and introduce myself. I explain that they, too, need support and counseling while their son is in treatment. My job is to bring them alongside residents and inform them about our customized family workshops and webinars so that they can participate in recovery at the same time as their loved one.”

Learning Disabilities & Substance Abuse

Treating Both Disorders Leads to Life & Recovery Success

 

According to the American Psychological Association, the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) reports that chemical dependency shares significant overlap with behavioral issues and learning disabilities. Individuals with learning disabilities have many things in common with those who misuse drugs and alcohol, as both groups exhibit low self-esteem, social isolation, depression, impulsiveness and academic difficulties. These characteristics have led behavioral experts to theorize about an underlying connection between learning disabilities and the disease of addiction.
