Managing Your Family Relationships to Support Your Sobriety\r\nFamilies are tricky. We love them and we hate them. We need them and we want them to leave us alone. How can we include our families in our rehabilitation process without repeating negative patterns and habits, and moving toward healthier, more supportive relationships?\r\n\r\n \tBe Patient.\u00a0Change takes time. Patterns and habits take a long time to develop, and they take a while to break. Be patient with your family, and ask that they be patient with you. Remember to apologize when you\u2019re out of line and keep moving forward.\r\n \tDon\u2019t React. Take a moment. Don\u2019t let the frustration of the situation get the best of you. When you hear something or see something you don\u2019t like, take a moment and allow yourself to respond appropriately.\r\n \tPay Attention.Know what\u2019s going on. When you recognize an unhealthy reaction or pattern: stop, assess the situation, and determine a new way to handle it. Self-awareness is the most important key to changing behavior.\r\n \tHealthy Coping. When things do get tough, find healthy hobbies that help you deal. Running, exercising, sports leagues, household hobbies, and other extra circulars are great ways to get away from your family for a little while and re-focus your attention.\r\n \tToday is Today. Don\u2019t worry about the past. Yes, you made mistakes. Yes, your family made mistakes. But today is a new day and you are a new you. Remember this when you recall past mistakes, or feel like you\u2019re taking a few steps back.\r\n\r\nManaging family relationships\u00a0can be an extremely difficult part of rehabilitation, but with support and patience, these relationships can become some of the most enjoyable and instrumental in maintaining sobriety.\r\nEmbarking on the Journey to Sobriety Through Addiction Treatment\r\nBeaches Recovery in Jacksonville, Florida (FL) can counsel you on how to manage your family relationships whilst you embark on your journey to\u00a0sobriety.\u00a0Our premier addiction treatment programs are designed for your success.
