Family Addiction Counseling Program Includes:
A day-long workshop to educate families about co-dependency (co-addiction), the disease concept of addiction, and the importance of self-care. Family members will also learn coping skills, how to create healthy boundaries, and how to provide support for the recovery of their loved one without enabling their addiction.
Family Group Counseling
Helps clients and family members understand how addiction affects family relationships, and provides education and practice on assertive communication, sharing emotions, conflict resolution and identifying and addressing thinking errors.
Family Individual Counseling
Unites families with their loved ones in individual combined therapy sessions. Depending on need, sessions may be with the Family Counselor, the client's Primary Counselor, and/or our dedicated Mental Health Counselor. In addition to addressing difficult issues, including trauma and abuse, which may be difficult to discuss in a group setting, these sessions also help to incorporate family input into each client's aftercare planning (as per authorization granted by each client).
The Impact of Addiction
Addiction has an impact on every member of a household, from the oldest members of the family to infants. When someone in your home has a drug or alcohol problem,
everyone feels the consequences of chemical dependence, and everyone needs help dealing with these devastating effects.
