In The Roadmap To Family Recovery, psychiatrist and family interventionist Dr Constant Mouton takes families on a transformative journey of finding recovery for their loved ones, themselves AND their families.

Families of people with addiction are often desperate for help, isolated and, at the same time, relentlessly assisting the person with the addiction, forgetting themselves in the process. Finding help for a loved one with addiction can be a daunting endeavour. How do you speak to someone about their addiction? How do you motivate them to accept treatment? Is an intervention essential?

Once the addicted loved one enters treatment, the family is usually forgotten. Their loved one will undergo addiction treatment and start to live a life of recovery. Their recovery will help them to react differently to their emotions and thoughts, behave differently, and their coping mechanisms change. Being in recovery offers the individual a new, healthy way of living and being in the world. Unfortunately, families rarely get the opportunity to heal from the effects the addiction had on them and recover in the same way and ath the same time as their relatives who receive treatment.

However, if the family does manage to recover and heal with the person in the treatment, they meet each other in a place of whole family recovery. A place where every member of the support system has similar knowledge, skills, and support for what addiction has done to them individually and as a group. Everyone has the same language about addiction, understands how boundaries work, and has similar ideas about supportive communication and mutual support. This helps everyone in the family and prevents addiction from spreading in the family and even to future generations. Recovery and all the benefits thereof should be available for everyone who deals with addiction, directly or indirectly.

Dr. Mouton’s work instils hope and helps families access resilience in their loved ones, themselves, and their families. He firmly believes that recovery should be accessible for the entire family, as collateral recovery notably enhances the well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
