Support for Family and Friends
Midway encourages families and friends of alcoholics and drug addicts to seek assistance through the form of a support program, regardless of whether your loved one seeks help or even recognizes the existence of a problem. These programs include:
Membership for these groups is voluntary, requiring only that one’s life has been adversely affected by someone else’s alcohol or drug problem. Groups are able to both give and receive comfort and understanding through shared experiences, strengths, and hope.
Recovering from the adverse effects of the disease of addiction is difficult. With recovery tools such as detachment, family members can begin to take care of themselves. Detachment is neither kind nor unkind. It does not imply evaluation of the person or situation from which we are detaching. It is simply a means for you to recover and look at situations realistically and objectively, thereby making intelligent decisions possible.
