PARENT CO-RECOVERY™ PROTOCOL
If you have a child that has as alcohol or drug use problem, the following “Intervention” method that Bill L. Jett and Associates has developed might be of interest to you.
As a parent with an adolescent or young adult child, you are no doubt aware of the drug epidemic around your child that makes him/her susceptible to using or becoming addicted to drug substances. You already may be struggling in some stage of substance abuse with your child, if not full scale addiction.
We have a treatment program in the practice for the parents and their substance using child that has proven effective in intervening successfully with their abuse/addiction with the clear goal of re-establishing their sobriety, and that enables you to have your real child back again.
This treatment process involves a very clear protocol with the emphasis on the Parents Co-Recovery™ that enables you, as parents, to intervene in your child’s addiction and start their Recovering process. This protocol is proactive and has a specific set of procedures that must be followed in order to stop your child’s drug use. The typical, minimal period of intensive treatment requires a period of 18 months to two (2) years in order to re-establish your child’s sobriety, and to enable them to develop the life they were living prior to their beginning uses of substances. When patterned substance use starts and ultimately becomes necessary for your child to cope with living, all growth and development stop.
So many parents are under the impression that they can’t intervene in their child’s life because he/she is 18, or older, and an “adult”, or because they simply refuse to stop using regardless of your protests. I would like to assure you that you do have the power to control your children, especially against this life threatening disease process that so readily becomes chronic, unending and terminal. This treatment process is designed to empower you, the parent/s who ultimately are the force in guiding their young children’s lives. Your responsibility is to learn what your Power is! Communication, clear and structured boundaries that are enforceable and that require accountability for their drug use and behavior are the keys to your effectively leveraging your Intervention with your child. Learning how to Empower yourself appropriately is the core part of this treatment process. At Bill L. Jett & Associates, we are dedicated to teaching you this treatment method and how to use it, step by step.
You are not alone in this critical life endeavor. You will be part of a Parent Co-Recovery™ Therapy Group that meets weekly, in addition to your involvement in several other individual and family therapy treatment modules. This Intervention method is for those parents who have the fortitude to persevere in this most difficult treatment process, which is proving to be remarkably successful for both your recovery and that of your child.
Feel free to contact us if you want further information regarding this treatment program. Thank you for your interest.
