The Impact of Addiction

Addiction has an impact on every member of a household, from the oldest members of the family to infants.  When someone in your home has a drug or alcohol problem,

everyone feels the consequences of chemical dependence, and everyone needs help dealing with these devastating effects. 


At Rocky Mountain Treatment Center our Family Program provides counseling, education and preventive resources for families as well as the individuals. Our caring and compassionate staff focuses on many key factors during Family Program, such as:

  • Creating a home environment that supports health and sobriety
  • Building stronger, more effective relationships within the family
  • Identifying at-risk family members who may be the targets of abuse or violence
  • Reinforcing the authority of parents and guardians
  • Preventing younger generations from adopting addictive behaviors
  • Helping family members heal from the destructive effects of addiction

"Each addict effects on average 10 to 30 people in their close circle. The more individuals who understand the nonfunctioning family member will result in healing compassion." - Jeff Quackenbush

is the person you decide to be."
