Brooklyn Rehab Placements Believes Sobriety Has Strong Success When There is Family Support

May 31, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Overcoming drug and alcohol addiction is often a huge battle. Brooklyn Rehab Placements believes, “A family that heals together stands a better chance of sustaining recovery over the long term.” Success rates for overcoming addiction have proven to be higher when the family of the addict also participates in a rehabilitation program.

Children especially can have great fear, confusion, and guilt when be around a person struggling with addiction. Many addiction programs geared toward the family stress that children and others are not responsible for the addicts behavior and helps teach the families how to express these fears.

Brooklyn Rehab Placements' mission is to help people and family reclaim their lives and recover from addiction. Education can also help families to escape the blame game. Rather than believing that the person’s addiction stems from weakness, willfulness, or stubbornness, they might learn how addictions stem from changes in brain chemistry and electrical impulse alterations. That data might help families to let go of their anger, so they can focus on healing.

Brooklyn Rehab Placements points out, “An addiction in a close relative can serve as a stressful life situation that persists for years, and that long-term dysfunction can make it hard for families to communicate clearly. There’s a block of mistrust between every member of a family touched by addiction.”

Brooklyn Rehab Placements believes connecting with peers may help, particularly if families use a trusted program like Al-Anon or Alateen. The idea is to provide help for families of drug addicts. These programs also provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for family members to use in order to learn, discuss, and overcome an addiction.

A family therapy program, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, is designed to break down that sensation of distrust, guilt, and stress. Families that were once defined by anger and by addiction can be transformed into tight, well-oiled units that support one another, come what may.

Dec 8, 2019

CHICAGO — Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson announced Thursday that he's retiring after more than three years as the city's top cop, a post he took over during one of the most violent chapters in the city's history and amid public outcry over the release of a video showing an officer shooting a black teen 16 times.

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Dec 8, 2019

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The International Criminal Court sentenced a Congolese warlord known as "The Terminator" to 30 years imprisonment Thursday after he was convicted of crimes including murder, rape and sexual slavery.

LA MORA, Mexico — Under a strong security presence, this remote farming community prepared to hold the first funerals Thursday for some of the nine American women and children killed by drug cartel gunmen. Dozens of high-riding pickups and SUVS, many with U.S. license plates from as far away as North Dakota, bumped across dirt and rock roads over desert, arid grasslands and pine-covered mountains Wednesday as night fell on this community of about 300 people. Many of the residents are dual U.S. and Mexican citizens who consider themselves Mormon but are not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ...
