Dependence doesn’t affect only the user: loved ones, too, can often feel anxious, fearful, depressed or overwhelmed. Often, without being aware of it, family and friends develop dysfunctional, inappropriate compensatory behaviours. These codependent behaviours encourage the persistence of the dependence in their loved one.
Because the family is a valuable source of support and plays a major role in the individual’s recovery, Clinique Nouveau Départ offers a Family and Friends program that consists of meetings organized for family members and friends. They are offered as group or individual meetings, and promote understanding, support and collaboration on the part of the family, often neglected in such circumstances.

to address your questions and concerns
A three-hour information meeting is scheduled every week, bringing family members and friends together to help them break their silence, learn to express their emotions and feelings and learn how to interact with their loved one who has a dependence problem.
Our approach is one that encourages the independence of family members and loved ones and that allows them to develop the emotional distance needed to better help the person with the dependence problem.
