Description

How to Help your Grown Child deal with Addiction.


(NEW DATE)



Few things in life are more stressful than watching a grown child self-sabotage their lives by living with an addiction. From problems trusting them with money, valuables, or the family car, to problems getting them to admit to their addictive use and seek treatment, navigating this issue is incredibly difficult.

Addictions are complex mental health issues that affect the biology, psychology, social environment and spirituality of an individual. They often co-occur with mental health issues such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, personality disorders, as well as trauma and PTSD.


In dealing with addiction, one must understand:


  • How to build safety and trust with the person affected
  • Explore motivation to change and help sustain those changes
  • Determine what possible functions the addictive behaviour plays within the individual’s life
  • Finding healthier alternatives to achieve those same functions
  • Guarding against substitute addictions
  • Addressing self-care and mental health needs
  • Addressing trauma issues
  • Helping the client meet unmet psychological needs in a healthy manner
  • Rebuilding damaged interpersonal relationships
  • Exploring and rebuilding damaged sense of self
  • Rebuilding and supporting healthy lifestyle
  • Resuming education/employment

This workshop will focus on giving you insight into your loved one's condition and tools to talk to your adult child and explore with them treatment options.

Note: Our psychoeducational seminars, workshops, groups and individual counselling services are eligible for reimbursement through most extended health insurance benefit plans.



Self-improvement begins with Self-knowledge.
