Comments of a Caron Renaissance Father

During my son's residence at Caron Renaissance I learned how the addict's interaction with his/her family is critical for the recovering addict and for the entire family. I learned that typical parental support for many young adults can become an obstacle to recovery for addicted young people. With the assistance of Caron Renaissance staff I explored ways in which the addict's family needs to face its own recovery and how to recognize risks to the addict triggered by well-meaning but mistaken thoughts and actions of the family. As my son's recovery progresses I've found the support of Caron Renaissance family group meetings and events in my area to be very helpful in dealing with the challenges that face families of recovering addicts.
