ADDICTION IS A FAMILY DISEASE: 300 attended CenterPointe’s 2018 Fall Conference

On September 14, 2018, CenterPointe Hospital presented their fall conference with the theme, Addiction is a Family Disease. With 300 participants in attendance, speakers introduced a compassionate way of thinking about the family experience of addiction, the genetic predisposition for addiction and mental illness, family codependency dynamics, as well as offered experiential healing activities for family recovery. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 21.5 million American adults (aged 12 and older) are battling a substance use disorder, with numbers growing dramatically every day. Addiction is considered to be, on average, inherited about 50 percent of the time (Journal Clinical Pharmacol-ogy & Therapeutics). Families with alcohol and drug problems also have high levels of distress causing family members to assume roles for survival that inevitably become self-destructive. CenterPointe Hospital offers support groups for family members to learn healthy boundaries and self-care techniques.
