New A Forever Recovery Blog Post Explores Why Some Parents Keep Enabling their Addicted Child
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
In its latest blog post, A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, is exploring a critically important topic: why some parents keep enabling their addicted child.
âWhile addiction takes a devastating toll on an addictâs physical, mental, emotional and even financial health, behind every addict there are family members and other loved ones who are going through living hell as well,â commented A Forever Recoveryâs CEO Per Wickstrom. âAnd often, parents are shocked and horrified to acknowledge that, despite their good intentions, somewhere along the line, they began enabling their addicted child. Itâs my hope that our latest blog post sheds light on this surprisingly common occurrence, and gives parents the confidence and clarity they need to truly be part of the solution â" instead of unintentionally fueling the problem.â
According to the Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, parents should keep the following in mind to avoid or stop enabling their childâs addiction:
Added Per Wickstrom: âThe theme of all of this advice, is that parents have to shift more responsibility and accountability onto their child â" which will almost invariably lead to resistance and conflict. However, parents need to be firm yet compassionate, and remember that they cannot afford to be their childâs friend all the time; they have to be their parent.â
