We don’t want to lose anyone to drivers who insist on drinking. Unfortunately, not all of our families have happy endings. There have been instances where families that are in recovery have been notified that their 19 year old son was killed in a wreck that involving underage drinking of alcohol. Even in a devastating tragedy like losing someone to a bad decision of breaking the law and driving while intoxicated, Families Recover is there for the families guiding them to the right people in the community that have been through situations like this. Comforting them in the loss and helping the family realize it wasn’t their fault is part of how we can help.
Many grieving parents take on that guilt for the rest of their lives. The “IF only” haunting thought, that “IF only” I would’ve done something different he or she would still be alive. Addiction is a terrible thief. It steals family members away long before there are tragic circumstances like untimely deaths to deal with as a family. Letting the family, and at Families Recover we mean the whole family; mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, and grandparents know that through loving counseling, they can move on and that families do recover.
