Addiction isn’t just about one person. Along with the person struggling with a substance use disorder, that person’s family is also struggling to figure out how to help them and support them in the best way possible for everyone involved. Addiction can be devastating for a family to deal with. It puts a strain on relationships, mental health, and finances. A family therapy program can help by offering treatment for those struggling with addiction, as well as their family.
At Solution Based Treatment, our family therapy program uses individual, family, and group therapy sessions to address every member of the family. Family members involved can be parents, children, or significant others. Contact our treatment team today to learn more about our addiction therapy programs.
What Is Family Therapy?
At SBT, we offer different treatment options for each person’s unique needs. We want to make sure there are options for every client and their family on their road to recovery and sobriety. A family therapy program offers treatment for everyone in the family affected by the loved one’s addiction. It’s a chance to deal with how the addiction has affected each one of them in a structured way and supervised by professionals.
Family counseling is structured so that family members can come together and work through how the addiction has affected them individually and as a family unit. This includes their emotional state, mental health, behaviors, and more. As a group and individually, the family members will work with therapists to better understand the addiction, its triggers, as well as learn the skills needed to manage and overcome addiction.
Our addiction treatment programs include:
- Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
- Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
- Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
- Residential treatment
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy
- Trauma therapy
- Relapse prevention
- Rock to Recovery music therapy
- Sober living program
