At Lorraine’s House and The Farmhouse, we’re here to help you and your addicted loved one. We specialize in helping your female family members, in Kansas City and all over the world to do two things: Learn and practice supportive and positive methods for motivating their loved ones to stop using drugs or alcohol and to empower them to feel better about themselves, get their life back on track, and improve their relationships, so they can transition back into the community free of the urge to use drugs and alcohol to cope.

At Lorraine’s House and The Farmhouse, we believe that family involvement is very important in substance abuse treatment. For family and friends of drug- or alcohol-addicted individuals, addressing addiction is one of the most difficult aspects of helping your addicted family member seek treatment. Most family members do not know how to bring up the issue of addiction therapy and choose to ignore the problem altogether for fear of pushing their loved one away or further into addiction.

These are all legitimate concerns, and we recommend that families approach their loved one in a gentle and supportive way. We also want families to know that most patients seek substance abuse treatment because of positive family involvement and intervention.

Whichever approach you take, it is important to understand that family can have an incredibly powerful impact and learning how to communicate effectively is critical. Try to help your loved one by being firm and supportive.

If someone you love is suffering from the effects of alcohol abuse, substance addiction or any other type of addiction, please call us today at 913-953-8371 or visit our website at
