Family Roles

Family Roles can be defined as patterns of behavior that individuals have to create a family system. When addiction, alcoholism, or mental health are present, a healthy family system can be compromised.

Hero

The family “hero” is said to be your typical Type A personality. Type A personalities are hard-working and more than likely, overachieving perfectionists. Through achievements, the “hero” tries to bring their family together, almost creating a facade. Typically, the hero strives for normalcy through their need to “do everything right.” Unfortunately, a driving need to “do everything right” fosters an internal pressure for the hero, leaving them highly anxious and susceptible to stress-related illnesses later in life..

Scapegoat

The scapegoat is just as it sounds. The scapegoat is the one person getting blamed for family issues. The scapegoat role tends to offer the family a “sense of purpose” by providing someone to blame. When scapegoats get older, they tend to act out in violence if male, while females often run off and live in a promiscuous manner.

Enabler

The enabler usually takes the position of being in denial and actually may create more harm in doing so without knowing it.The enabler tries to shield or protect the family sometimes indirectly or directly. The enabler can be a parent or child and assumes the responsibility of justifying or “making excuses” for their loved one.

Mascot

The Mascot can often be referred to as the “class clown.” The mascot is usually seeking the attention of others and usually does so in a fashion that is at the expense of themselves, in a negative way. Sometimes the mascot will resort to providing comedic relief to others in an attempt to shy away from their own feelings.

Lost Child

The “lost child” is usually shy and withdrawn. They don’t seek (or get) a lot of attention from other family members, especially when alcoholism is present within the family. Lost children put off making decisions, have trouble with forming intimate relationships, and choose to spend time alone detached from any challenges caused by unhealthy family dynamics.

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, you are far from alone. Substance abuse and mental health disorders are very common in the United States, and most people will either experience it themselves or know someone with an addiction at some point in their lifetime. By learning more about addiction and how it can be treated, we can make significant strides towards a brighter, healthier future.

Does Addiction Affect The Whole Family?

One of the common disclaimers for addicts is the belief of “I’m not hurting anyone but myself”. There is a reason why drug and alcohol abuse is considered to be a family disease because addiction affects the whole family. Iif it isn’t addressed, the family can be left in pieces. As the addict suffers, so can the family in a variety of different ways— fractured relationships, feelings of guilt and shame, and harmful levels of stress. As the addict deals with ills of their disease, the family around them can crumble. Along with medical detox and a strong program for the addict, family support and therapy is a strong element to our treatment program. 

Family therapy can address how the family has dealt with the addiction and any grievances they may have. It gives the client and their family the opportunity to mend what’s broken, and often can be a chance to start fresh as the client embarks on their recovery journey. 

As a loved one, you may be asking questions like “how do I get my son to go to treatment?” and it may seem like an uphill battle. The first step in your loved one’s recovery is the acceptance that there is a problem, and by being honest with them, you can help them take the first step to sobriety. Intervention isn’t always easy, but we’re available to help during these beginning stages. By intervening at the right time, you can help your loved one reclaim their life. 

Addiction isn’t merely substance abuse. It’s the teardown of familial relationships. It’s the separation between loved ones. It’s the missed time that should be spent loving one another and enjoying each other’s company. 90210 Recovery provides support to families in any way possible— and the families, in turn, act as support for their addicted loved ones.

What Is Family Support And How Does It Play Into Myself Or My Loved One Being In Treatment?

Family support is one of the most important roles in treatment, due to the fact that the individual who has the addiction is not the only one who suffers. The family of the addict/ alcoholic typically stands by and watches their loved one endure pain throughout the course of addiction. Usually the family is either too afraid or embarrassed to reach out for help and talk about what’s going on. We believe in treating the family as a whole and creating a space that allows them to work towards the ultimate goal of recovery. Our clinical team is updating the family weekly or as needed, depending on the client’s preference.


On the other hand, sometimes family members are no longer involved. It isn’t uncommon for family relationships to be stressed, especially when there is addiction and mental health. If this is the case, the team at 90210 Recovery will work with the individual on creating healthy relational goals that are attainable and cohesive with the individuals recovery goals and plans.

Can I Continue To Receive Family Support After Myself Or My Loved One Leaves?
Ongoing family support is vital in the journey of recovery. Recovery is more than just 30 days of inpatient residential treatment. A lot of underlying issues and family system dynamics are touched on early on in the treatment process, but this isn’t always the case. Depending on the individual’s addiction and mental health components, individual therapy, family support, and abstinence from mind-altering substances may be one of the few interventions. Before admission into 90210 Recovery, our admissions specialists are working to identify healthy support systems. Part of our program is treating the entire system and it usually starts with you or your loved becoming willing to enter into treatment.
FAQ About Family Support

How do I know if my loved one is addicted to drugs? 

Sometimes addiction isn’t easy to spot. Addiction is more than alcohol or drug use. When someone is addicted, they’ll demonstrate physical signs, behavioral changes. Has their appearance changed dramatically? Do they display constantly display erratic behavior? Is there an excess of drug paraphernalia in their home? These are all important questions that can help identify a problem. 

What is family support? 

When a loved one is in a cycle of self-harm, family members are often the first to be deeply affected. Once your loved one has been admitted, we update the family weekly with progress, and if needed, we schedule therapy sessions for spouses and family members to begin repairing with the client. 

How do I talk to my kids about addiction? 

If you’re struggling with substance abuse, having an honest conversation with your children can be difficult, but it can be necessary. Everyone’s situation is different, and we recommend taking time to heal in our facility, and when you’re ready, speak to your children if you feel that’s the right thing to do.
