Many people assume that the substance user is the one who needs therapy. The reality is, that substance abuse affects every aspect of their relationships with their family. A dysfunctional family unit has to be repaired to help an individual successfully recover from their substance use disorder.
Trust is ruined. Addicts steal from their loved ones. They lie to their loved ones. Families lie to protect the reputation of the substance user. Communication amongst everyone is shattered. With the help of family therapy, all of that can be repaired. You can experience a loving family unit that supports and loves one another fully.
Finding the right family therapy module is important for success in healing. Here are four different types of modules that you can consider:
Family therapy is a scary endeavor and we know how helpful it is to know what is coming. Firstly, you are introduced to the licensed therapist individually so they can analyze the family unit. Then a treatment plan is created for every member to agree to.
The therapist will then help guide each session to tackle issues that are most pressing and detrimental to the family unit. They will create a safe environment to speak openly about emotions, conflicts, and fears. They listen with compassion and act as a guiding light for the family throughout the therapy.
Your family can become a better unit with a little help. No matter how intense someone’s substance use disorder is, everything can be repaired. Call our licensed professionals today to learn more about getting the family therapy you need.
