A loved one is working towards recovery, and may still be struggling with addiction– this could be your partner, your father, your grandparent, your child…. the addiction could be to alcohol, work, marijuana, their phone, video games to name a few. Addiction is so common, yet it is not often openly talked about, the language of the word itself, “addiction” has so many negative reactions, and our culture does not look at it as a family disease that affects so many- causing unhealthy relationships, unhealthy boundaries and codependency.
Recovery is actively taking steps toward a life that is more healthy and well, and you can be in recovery if someone in your life is also working toward a more healthy life, not escaping from life with a substance or tool of some kind, or maybe they are not there yet.
Addiction is a disease, it is not a choice, it is complex, yet there is often major unknowing around addiction and how it has affected other people. Denial is common, even if there is awareness of addiction. You may be very codependent as a result of being in a family or culture of addiction, and you may be looking for a way to have healthy relationships around recovery.
I am here to support you, whether recovery has been strong for years or you are just discovering the effects of addiction and recovery is a hope. I am also able to offer assistance whether or not you live with the person or whether the person is still living. I support you through a combination of energy work and conversation, practices, and self-care. I am here to help through private Intuitive Reiki sessions and the class An Energetic Perspective on Recovery.
You do not have to do this alone. You deserve support, self-care and healing. I am here to support you, without judgment and with deep understanding.
