Goals of the Silver Pines Family Program
Benefits of Strategic Family Therapy in the Recovery Process
We know that addiction is a family disease, and everyone is impacted. Family recovery means loved ones and the individual in treatment are doing something to manage the impact of this disease. Family recovery can be difficult and is certainly a commitment, but we promise to be there with you each step of the way. Nobody needs to make this journey alone. Not only do we offer weekend in-person family counseling for addiction, but we also offer a family support group via Zoom.
There are no guarantees that a loved one will get and stay sober, but research supports the value of involving the entire family system throughout the treatment and recovery process. The best chance of success is a team-based approach, like strategic family therapy, since recovery happens in the community. Provided below are some findings regarding when the entire family system gets involved in the recovery of their loved ones.
What Are the Techniques Used in Family Therapy?
So, what is family therapy, and how is it used in addiction treatment? Family therapy for substance use disorder and addiction involves teaching all family members about addiction and how they can participate in helping their loved one in recovery. Through family therapy, family members learn that addiction isn’t something that their loved one can avoid. Recovery isn’t just a choice. It involves a course of treatment and therapy, including family therapy for substance abuse. Once family members know this, they are more likely to show patience and compassion for their loved ones who are struggling with addiction. And they are more likely to participate in strategic family therapy.
Uniting Family Members with Their Loved One In Recovery
At Silver Pines, we aim to unite each family member with their loved one to fight substance use disorder and addiction and to improve family relationships and interactions. We support family therapy and a compassionate and understanding treatment style instead of combative and confrontational. We teach each family they can be their loved one’s best chance at recovery by advocating for their treatment, supporting their loved one’s treatment plan, fully participating in all family therapy for addiction treatment, and most importantly, taking care of themselves throughout their recovery program.
