Importance of Self-Care for Parents of Patients in Drug Rehab Centers


Having a child suffering from addiction is incredibly heartbreaking, and it’s natural for you to do whatever you can as their parent to help them. While you’re watching them go through detox, taking them to counseling at drug rehab center in Los Angeles, and worrying constantly about a relapse, taking care of yourself can slip to the wayside. It’s very necessary for you to take care of yourself when you’re devoting yourself to your child’s recovery.

The Basics of Self-Care

Al-Anon is a support group for family members and friends of addicts. It’s a great resource when you’re struggling with the guilt and resentment your child’s addiction is causing. Al-Anon encourages you to remember the Three Cs: you didn’t cause your child’s addiction, you can’t cure it, and you can’t control it. These are all your child’s responsibility.
