  • Simple Path Recovery Announces Family Support Group Via Zoom

Simple Path Recovery recently launched telehealth knowhow for all of its family support services. Beginning Thursday, February 18th, Simple Path will host a family support group that will meet once-a-month via Zoom. If you have family or loved ones who would like to participate in family meeting/group, you can contact us at 855-367-3625 or by contacting Colt Crowser at 954-790-8178 or Colt@SimplePathRecovery.Net.  The support group is open to family or friends and loved ones of prior clients, as well as existing clients. Our family support group is another “path” for our extended Simple Path family to stay connected and get the assistance and guidance that has become difficult during Covid-19. The group meeting is complimentary. All you need is a smartphone, computer or tablet with strong internet connection. For best service, families can download the Zoom App here. Very similar to AL-ANON, this is a support group for family members or friends. It is NOT intended for recovering clients themselves.

Tele-support or group video chat allows us to support families of our clients and offer guidance and support that will benefit everyone involved. Through technology, tele-support offers a strategic advantage for families not residing locally in the South Florida area. The first Zoom meeting will be held on Thursday February 18th at 7 PM EDT.

Family Addiction Support is Needed Now More Than Ever

Covid-19 created the perfect storm to unravel an overworked system trying to deal with already potent opioid crisis. While gains have been made in the last five years, they were all erased in 2020 with the arrival of Coronavirus from China. In one moment, isolation and quarantining became the new norm, which is the last thing a recovering addict needs to maintain their sobriety. According to the National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics, over 81,000 American lives were lost to drug overdose in a 12-month period that is inclusive of the Covid-19 pandemic: a 15% increase over 2019.

During this time, access to 12-step support  (including Al-ANON or ALA-Teen) groups were shut down for in-person meetings. Video conferencing became mainstream. However, families that relied on this in-person support were left by the wayside. Typically, support is challenging  to accomplish in text messages, social media chats and the like. At the same time, technology was new to so many not working in corporate America and it took some time to work out all the challenges. While these efforts to stay connected were laudable, many remained isolated and felt the fabric of their families weaken without help and guidance.

Family Support Remains Essential for Recovery

One of the cornerstones of Simple Path Recovery has always been family therapy for clients and their families. In family therapy, we teach teamwork, collaboration, and the belief that the family unit can and should operate well for everyone’s benefit. Family therapy highlights how essential clear messaging is and relates potential pitfalls. In this approach, families and friends learn what influences their conduct and how certain actions can affect the whole family. When one member is struggling with a problem, they may be shocked to uncover out how their individual battle has actually affected everyone that is close to them. Consequently, the family can discover healthier approaches to care for that person. Simple Path and their team of addiction professionals are excited to embark on this new chapter where technology will help them to support families more effectively.

For more information regarding monthly family support group via Zoom, please contact Colt Crowser – Alumni Director at 954-790-8178 or Colt@SimplePathRecovery.Net.

Jack’s journey began when he arrived at Simple Path to get clean and sober. He never thought he could deal with his anxiety and depression without using drugs. Group and one-on-one therapy empowered him to deal with his problems and get better. Going strong at his one-year anniversary, Jack is in a very good place.
