Family Therapy

Addiction is a family disease. And it affects every type of family.

Misuse of drugs and alcohol impacts every member of the family, regardless of how “family” is defined. As part of our commitment to comprehensive, wrap-around care, our patients are offered Family Therapy because it has proven to advance outcomes. In doing so, it helps people build deeper understanding and connection in the journey toward lasting change and healing. Together.

How does Family Therapy work?

  • Examining the meaning and impact of addiction
  • Improving communication
  • Exploring boundaries
  • Increasing the quality of connection
  • Developing relapse prevention plans

Family Therapy is available to enrolled patients and empowers patients and their families to define what they want recovery to look like and develop their own plan to get there. Our Family Therapists treat families and support networks as the patient. This ensures the concerns and needs of the collective are properly addressed while helping people work through complex issues around re-building trust and releasing feelings of guilt, anger and frustration.

Why is Family Therapy so effective?

A focus on the entire “family” during treatment is proven to lead to more positive outcomes. It strengthens relationships and reduces the likelihood of a return to active use.

We should all remember that having a substance use disorder doesn’t make someone an expert in treatment and recovery. Patients may not be able to share everything they learn during treatment. Family Therapy helps loved ones and support networks by inviting them to participate throughout the recovery process. And because no family is perfect, we also help families effectively work through the effects of trauma, separation and divorce, parenting, intimacy, and many more complex issues.
