"When faced with finding quality information about recovery, it's easy to become overwhelmed. FamilyRx was able to provide straightforward content that I could watch as many times as I needed. I wanted to be an advocate for my loved ones, but didn't have the knowledge or skills needed to help them make the most informed decisions for their recovery options. And while I wanted to be their advocate, I learned I also needed to be my own. Having resources available that not only helps me help them, but also helps me help ME, is invaluable as we continue along this journey together. I've already registered for the next series of presentations. I encourage you to do the same. "
"In the early years of my family’s journey with our loved one through mental health and substance use issues, it was my belief that my child’s decisions were more about her will and desire, and that she was the only one who needed to change. I was so wrong! As a result of signing up for the very first Family Rx season, and subsequently the whole year, our entire family has changed and grown closer. From learning about the neuroscience of addiction and the effects of trauma, to changing the language we use and how we listen to each other, to realizing there is no one right way of recovery and that my child’s personal motivations are important to understand and consider, to the overarching desire to keep a relationship with my child and for her to know that she is loved unconditionally, whether or not she is in recovery, FamilyRx has been a lifeline for all of us. I look forward to continuing to educate myself and my family about recovery, as well as a support group that I facilitate in my community, and would highly encourage anyone, no matter how long their journey has been going on, to join. It has made such a positive difference and I am so very grateful for this invaluable resource!! "
"Because of our son’s heroin addiction which came to a head his senior year in high school and my husband’s PTSD, I always had trouble with effective communication/being able to stop the yelling in our household. With Family Rx, I learned better techniques for creating peace in my family and helping our loved one get better, and it's improved our family life immensely. Family Rx provides science and evidence-based tools that have helped me, even as only one family member, to improve our family life, and remain connected rather than disconnected. Family Rx provides a myriad of perspectives, so you get to learn ideas from those who have a substance use disorder, from family members/parents, from clinicians, from siblings. I believe that recovery does not have a “one-size-fits-all” solution and the Family Rx speakers demonstrate that. By offering speakers from many different backgrounds, I have been able to pick up a great idea here, then there to help my unique family and loved one’s situation. Learning the neuroscience behind addictive behaviors and strategies to help motivate change are critical elements to balancing the difficult/challenging roller coaster journey of having a loved one who has substance use disorder. Learning to meet someone where they are is a skill that I can use to improve my relationship not only with my loved one who suffers from substance use disorder but also with myself, my husband and other extended family members. The vast array of resources available within Family Rx helped me gain confidence to keep striving towards change, even if it feels change is happening at the pace of moving an iceberg. Recovery is not an “event,” but a lifelong journey and Family Rx helps increase my strength and resolve to keep going forward for the betterment of all members of my family."
