Why Family Counseling?

Family Counseling recognizes that families are a critical part of the healing process for their teen and strives to equip each family with the tools and strategies to effectively support their loved one’s recovery.

Family counseling sessions typically involve all or most family members and are led by a trained professional. These sessions aim to:

  • Improve communication
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Enhance understanding and empathy among family members 

Counseling sessions are designed to shed light on the dynamics of the family system. They reveal patterns of interaction that may contribute to the problems of the individual in crisis, as illustrated in this brief story:

In the case of Sara’s  family, for instance, her parents found that their initial attempts to help Sara only led to more resistance and rebellion. Through family counseling, they learned to approach her struggles from a place of empathy and understanding, rather than judgment or criticism.

They learned to communicate effectively, expressing their worries and fears without making Sara feel cornered or attacked. This shift in their approach had a transformative effect on Sara’s recovery process, fostering an environment of trust, acceptance, and support.

Benefits of Counseling for Your Family

Learn why your family can benefit like Sara’s did and together with the help of our programs, all run by professionals licensed in family dynamics, relationships, and addiction. 

Each family’s journey is unique. What works for one may not work for another. However, the underlying principles remain the same:

  1. The power of understanding
  2. The strength of unity
  3. The transformative potential of love and support

  • Improve Communication: Enhance how your family members express feelings and concerns, fostering openness.
  • Strengthen Family Bonds: Build closer relationships within your family, providing a stronger support network.
  • Learn About Addiction and Mental Health: Help your family understand addiction as a disease, reducing stigma.
  • Identify Contributing Family Dynamics: Reveal patterns within your family that may influence addictive behavior.
  • Learn Coping Strategies: Provide healthy ways to cope with stress and emotions, crucial for recovery.
  • Support Recovery and Prevent Relapse: Engage your family in the recovery process of your teen, crucial for long-term recovery.
  • Improve Problem-Solving Skills: Help your family navigate conflicts and challenges more effectively
“This treatment center has been a pleasant one if you can call placing your child in a treatment facility pleasant.  It’s been the best that I could ask for.  The family intensive weekend allowed me to see things in myself as well as in my family members that I might not have otherwise seen. If I could recommend a treatment center it would definitely be this one.”
– Kattie D.
“If you’re at your wits end with your adolescent using drugs, then this may be the place for you! As hard as it is to put your kiddo in a treatment program, this place makes it easier. The intense family therapy is like a breath of fresh air, as long as you’re honest with yourself! Just remember, you didn’t cause this and you can’t fix it! So let these ppl help!”

The Johnsons were at odds because of Jake’s addiction. Silence and blame filled their home. When they started family counseling, things began to change. They learned to talk openly about the problems and understood Jake’s struggle.

Instead of fighting each other, they started supporting one another. Jake felt less alone, and his family felt empowered to help. Over time, their home turned from a place of conflict into a support hub, showing them how to face recovery together.

Such is the direction our 2-day Exclusive Family Workshop can steer you toward!
