Road to Recovery
Road to Recovery promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders, celebrates people in recovery, lauds the contributions of treatment and service providers, and promotes the message that recovery in all its forms is possible.
This month on Road to Recovery, engaging families in recovery can improve communication, reduce stress, and increase success. Family members are often critical providers of support, love, and care throughout the recovery journey. But they need their own resources and networks. They need to share experiences and get help navigating the emotionally stressful recovery process of their loved ones.
This is especially true for military families. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a common and devastating condition that leads veterans and family members alike to use drugs and alcohol to cope. Because of duty assignments, members of the military are often separated from their families for long periods of time. As a result, the family often goes through life challenges and stress.
This show examines the benefits of peer support and networks aimed at families as well as the individual member in recovery. The panel will review models and approaches to family recovery and, specifically, effective support networks and resources. These include resource centers on military bases for families of service members and veterans coping with separation and comorbid conditions, including PTSD.
