Family members and close friends are among those most deeply impacted by the addiction process. At Parkdale, we will not let you become the “forgotten victims.” It is perfectly normal for family members to struggle significantly with issues of guilt, shame, anger, blame, and co-dependence. The professional’s family also deals with other important concerns regarding finances, family dynamics, and social stigma. The whole support system deserves to heal. Parkdale is committed to helping the family and friends of addicted professionals through available counseling and therapy, education, resources, and payment plans. We see that the family and caregivers as equally in need of healing.
We also understand and utilize strict confidentiality protocols to provide peace of mind to the professional and their family. If you question whether or not you or a loved one may be addicted to or abusing substances, we encourage you to utilize these industry-standard screening tools that are not meant to diagnose, but may serve as preliminary indicators that there is a problem with substance abuse /substance use disorder:
We have staff dedicated specifically to helping family and friends throughout this difficult process. Our network of affiliates throughout the country provide access to follow-up counseling and other services long after the client is treated on-site. Only together we will learn. At Parkdale, we understand the reality that addiction is a disease affecting the entire family and we are uniquely qualified to help everyone involved restore hope and rebuild lives.
