By attending Alanon, NarAnon, Families Anonymous, CoDA, ACA, Celebrate Recovery and other 12 step meetings on a regular basis, families affected by addiction learn to change their attitudes and old patterns and habits to find serenity and even happiness. Here are a few highlights of family recovery:
According to the National Association for Children of Alcoholics, the 7 C’s of addiction can serve as a useful framework for helping children understand a parent’s substance abuse problem and how it affects their own lives:
I didn’t cause it.
I can’t cure it.
I can’t control it.
I can care for myself
By communicating my feelings,
Making healthy choices, and
By celebrating myself.
