All participation in the family therapy program is voluntary. The participant must agree to attend all scheduled meetings. The participant will be expected to spend at least 4 hours per week on family therapy-related activities.
If necessary, arrangements can be made for housing during the first few weeks of treatment if the person suffering from addiction has family members who are unable to care for themselves because of their own addiction-related problems.
What Happens During Family Program Meetings?
During family program meetings, participants receive psycho-education about substance abuse and its impact on families, as well as information about how other members of the group are coping with the situation. Participants also receive guidance and support regarding how they might approach each other in a more constructive way.
What Is the Point of Family Therapy?
Family therapy is a valuable tool in addiction recovery because it gives each family member an opportunity to speak openly and discuss their concerns and opinions about what they think might work best for the person suffering from addiction. This promotes healthy conflict resolution and individual growth. It can also support long-term recovery for the individual, as it widens the person’s support network.
