Addiction is a Family Disease Article HOME

Arel Hope recognizes the fact that when there is an addict or alcoholic in the family, all members are greatly affected. There is imbalance in relationships and negative emotions rule: anger, resentments, shame, guilt, grief, helplessness and hurt. The family members also need support to heal and empower themselves.

Designed by Rajeshwari Luther, who has over 10 years experience of working with families, the Arel Hope Family Support Program is specifically tailored to meet the distinct needs of spouses, children, parents and other family members affected by addiction.

Grounded in the same 12-step recovery principles that Arel Hope teaches alcoholics and addicts, the family support program allows people to recover independently or in partnership with a family member who is suffering from alcoholism or drug addiction.
