New Directions for Women is launching a campaign this holiday season on KOST 103.5 FM and KFI 640 AM to reach as many families in need of direction on their recovery journey. Our intake team is available to provide confidential, free assessments to help women break free from addiction and heal from trauma, whether this is their first-time entering alcohol and drug rehab or they’ve had multiple treatment episodes. Our hope is that women and loved ones affected by the family disease of addiction reach out with their questions and guidance for a safe place to go for help.
The holiday season is a joyous time for many, but it can be extremely difficult for individuals who struggle with substance use disorder. We may be missing a loved one who has passed on, and it’s the first time without them present for the holidays. We may identify with a strong pressure (whether real or perceived) to be the perfect mother, wife, or daughter as we prepare the holiday feast, or throw a New Year’s Eve party. Opportunities to drink alcohol or engage in risky behaviors (including drinking and driving) become even more frequent. Alcoholic eggnog, mulled wine, and other common holiday beverages are ubiquitous. Family issues that have been going on for decades can intermingle with alcohol and drug use, resulting in a perfect storm of grief, anger, and stress. Returning home from the holidays, a place where an addiction to drugs or alcohol took home or the site of traumatic memories, can stir up a greater craving.
Friends and family play an integral role in supporting individuals with substance use disorder. Often, we’ve found it’s a family member concerned about a loved one who calls us first. They may be unsure how to talk to their loved one, or feel awkward bringing it up. Remember, substance use disorder is a disease. This illness is something the individual did not ask for, and that they can’t control. Having a mindset of love, compassion, understanding, and concern can go a long way in helping yourself or a loved one.
While the holidays present increased risks for people suffering from substance use disorder, the devastating effects of addiction can be felt throughout the year. We’ll be continuing radio outreach throughout the year, hoping to dispel myths about addiction. One such myth is that people must hit their “bottom” to get help for addiction. However, we can raise that bottom and get them into rehab before they experience the full emotional, physical, and financial wreckage of substance use disorder.
Our intake team is happy to walk anyone through this process, recommend an interventionist, and talk through our program to find out if it would be a good fit. We are a private, exclusively female program with affordable private pay options. We also accept in-network and out-of-network health insurance benefits that can cover much of the addiction treatment cost. However, we do not accept Medicare or Medicaid. Reach out today for a free, confidential assessment. We know recovery.
