Family support is essential in long-term wellness, especially for younger people. Sometimes parents can become disillusioned and may blame themselves for the family predicament and find themselves terrified at the thought that their other children may develop a similar drug or alcohol abuse issue.
Our case managers help parents get the resources they need to walk this tightrope of fear and blame; from education, which will help the family better understand what happened and how it was most likely not a parenting failure, to how to communicate with younger children about the topic of drug abuse, and the best way(s) to get/stay involved in their child’s treatment.
Each case manager has the experience needed to help patients and their families with the issues being faced and will help secure the right resources and support as needed.
Clinical Case Management as a Cornerstone of Health
There are so many facets involved in substance abuse that it takes time to work out the influences and implications. Pine Tree Recovery case managers have a longer-term view. The medical team will be there to address the patient’s medical needs 24/7 during withdrawal and detoxification. After which, they may only be required for check-ups, medical evaluations and continued administration of medication.
