Discovery Recovery understands the importance of family in a person’s life, and we see your loved ones as those who can help you get through the bad times. However, there are cases where clients get engulfed with substance abuse due to family. This is why we always have family counseling and therapy in our treatment facility. We have designed it in a way to help clients and their families develop open channels of communication, solve old issues and trauma, and move toward the road of recovery together.
More than blood relations, our team of professional family therapists know and understand how family members affect each other. They see families as a system where each part is related to one another. When one part is having problems, the whole machine suffers. Consequently, it’s the other parts of the machine that can help repair the broken one.
Family therapy is more than putting a group of relatives in one room to talk to each other. Various therapeutic approaches use the strengths and resources of the family to help them conquer their substance dependence. On top of that, family therapy addresses the effects of substance abuse on the family and tries to reduce the harm done to each family member.
Other discussions and interventions during family therapy include:
- Discussing family roles
- Identifying ways to improve communication and rebuild trust
- Learning what helps and what is harmful
- Identifying ways to interact that respects the needs of everyone involved
If you have a family member suffering from substance abuse and feel like it is affecting the whole family, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our hotline is open for calls 24/7, and our team of professional therapists can accommodate you and your family any time of the week. Discovery Recovery knows the importance of family, and we will do everything in our power to keep the family safe and happy at all times.
