What to Expect From Family Therapy
We can use family therapy to help you overcome barriers that are stopping you from making necessary behavioral or cognitive changes during treatment. Every session is unique and highly personalized to meet your needs and accommodate the schedule and requirements of your family members. How often you have family therapy sessions will depend on your progress, the work schedules of family members, transportation availability, and other factors.
You may attend a joint therapy session a handful of times throughout your residential stay, or you could have frequent appointments. The proximity of your family and the depth of issues stemming from the SUD will play a role in determining how often family therapy takes place if our team believes it will improve your treatment.
A few things you can expect from family therapy include:
- Working through relationship issues inhibiting recovery
- Rebuilding relationships and creating healthy boundaries
- Discussing the consequences and effects of SUD on the family
- Educating family members about SUD and treatment
