Transformation: Tools are provided so that you can put all the information you receive into real-life scenarios and practice them. 7 steps are given to teach families how to communicate with their addicted loved one using the BALM method.

Support: We make sure that families know they are not alone in their process. The BALM Family Program offers group calls with some question and answer sessions. It also gives the opportunity to listen to other families who have gone through or are going through the same experiences.

Developing Coping Methods

The BALM Family Program is designed to teach families of addicts some methods for coping with their loved one’s addiction. It also teaches people how to be pillars of strength and encouragement to help those in their recovery. Participants will learn how to:

  • Set boundaries
  • Let go of judgment
  • Recognize relapse signs
  • Regain a sense of calm
  • Maintain peace in their household

In order for a person to be successful in recovery, the whole family needs to heal. Obsessing over relapse and not knowing how to deal with early recovery can be detrimental to a person trying to stay sober. As a unit, a family can come together and increase everyone’s chance of becoming better. It’s important to have support, especially from people who have been in your shoes. You aren’t in this battle by yourself. With the right knowledge and tools, you can make healing a real possibility.
