Family Programming is critical to a successful recovery, not only for the addict, but for other family members as well.
Years of addiction can throw a family into chaos, resulting in anger, lack of trust, hopelessness, and resentment. It is only by getting involved in a patient’s treatment plan that the entire family can begin healing.
Our Family Programs include education about addiction and how families are impacted by the disease. Participants then focus on identifying ineffective communication patterns and unhealthy coping skills that enable the progression of the disease process. During the final few days, family members and patients work together by utilizing their improved understanding to make a commitment to support the family recovery process.
While in treatment, families discuss and learn about issues such as:
- Active addiction
- Recovery process
- Relapse behaviors
- Effective boundaries
- Personal support systems
- Regulation of emotions
- Healthy coping skills
