How Family Therapy Works
During family therapy, the therapist will focus on the family’s strengths to incite positive changes to the family dynamic. Positive changes tend to lead to more positive changes, which benefits everyone participating.
Addiction damages family ties, so the therapist will work with the client and their loved ones to confront the problems in their relationships and help them rebuild trust and improve communication. We provide a safe space where families can immediately get to work to resolve deep-seated, sensitive, underlying issues.
We also take time to educate families on the risks of enabling, codependency and other unhealthy patterns. Oftentimes, these behaviors are what lead to addiction in the first place, and they can increase the risk of relapse.
