Our services - Family Counseling

It’s a family affair.

 

As loving family members of someone who is struggling with addiction, you naturally want to help and support your loved one any way you can. That help will be vital to their road to recovery, but if you don’t say, do, or encourage exactly the right things, then you could unknowingly become a detriment to their healing process.

What is family counseling?

 

Family counseling (or therapy) is the building up of the family as an integral part of the recovery process. It encourages family members to learn how the addiction has affected the unit as a whole and on an individual level. It investigates issues in the family that have arisen due to the addiction and that existed before drugs or alcohol became a factor (maybe issues that created the need to use in the first place).

 

What are the benefits?

 

Significantly fewer addicts suffer from relapse when they have the support of their educated family members to back them up. That is due to the solid support system that is built up during each session and the mutual understanding between you and your family.

You are able to better understand your loved one’s struggles, and your loved one is able to see what affects his addiction has had on you. By resolving underlying issues, he is able to remove the stresses that initially drove him to use and greatly reduce the desire or need to use again.

 

What should I expect?

 

During family counseling sessions, a professional counselor talks to you and your family to determine the best possible rehab strategy. She also teaches you how to encourage positive behavior, be supportive, and deal with your emotions in a healthy, productive way.

It is often a very difficult and confusing time for family members, and this is a safe place to ask the questions that have been nagging you. Uncertainty, concern, and confusion are very common and understandable feelings, and counseling gives you a platform in which to seek answers.
