Helping You, Help Yourself. Take Your Recovery to the Next Level.

Family group therapy is a form of therapy that involves the participation of family members or significant others in the treatment process of an individual struggling with addiction.

 

Addiction affects not only the individual with the substance use disorder but also their family. Family group therapy aims to address the dynamics within the family that may contribute to or exacerbate addiction, as well as to provide support and education for family members. Family members are oftentimes very influential and a vital part of successfully conquering addiction. 

 

We hold family group therapy every Sunday at the center.

You do not need to be blood related to participate in family group therapy. Family therapy can be a close relative, a family friend, or even a  neighbor or coworker, if it’s someone you have a close relationship to. Family therapy services are not only for addiction, but also used when people are struggling with marital issues, financial hardship, recurring conflicts, and difficulty with productive communication.

Helping You, Help Yourself. Take Your Recovery to the Next Level.

Family group therapy can be an essential component of comprehensive addiction treatment programs, as it addresses the broader social and interpersonal factors that influence recovery within the family unit.

 

By involving family members in the treatment process, it helps strengthen bonds, improve communication, and create a supportive environment conducive to long-term recovery. These are some key components of family therapy:

  • Education - Family members are provided with information about addiction, including its causes, effects, and treatment options. Education helps family members better understand the nature of addiction and reduces stigma and misconceptions.
  • Communication skills - Sessions often focus on improving communication within a family. This may involve improving listening skills, assertive communication techniques, and conflict resolution strategies. Improved communication can help family members express their concerns, set boundaries, and support each other in healthier ways.
  • Setting boundaries -  Family therapy helps family members establish and maintain healthy boundaries with the individual struggling with addiction. Setting boundaries can help protect family members from the negative consequences of addiction while still offering support and encouragement for recovery.
  • Support and coping skills -  Family therapy provides a supportive environment for family members to share their experiences, emotions, and challenges related to addiction. Therapists may teach coping skills and self-care strategies to help family members manage stress and maintain their well-being, as this can be a difficult time for everyone involved.
