Family Therapy in Addiction
Addiction takes a toll on the entire family, creating pain, sadness, and isolation. Maintaining relationships in the midst of addiction can be difficult, frustrating, and even scary. We understand where you are and we want to help you change the situation and begin the healing process while your loved one is completing his or her drug and alcohol rehab program. The primary objectives of our Family Therapy is to provide more information about the disease of addiction, explore family roles and address family conflict, develop healthy communication skills and boundary setting and to begin the healing process.
It has been said that addicts who enter into recovery are actually fortunate for they are forced to take a look at themselves and their spirituality. By self-examination, recovering addicts are able to realize that their lack of spirituality is partly the cause of their distress. It seems that many people are incapable of tolerating themselves because they have a negative feelings about themselves. They start to have a distorted self image which leads them to go to great lengths to escape or deny their identity as they perceive it. All of these things make discovering spirituality impossible. A very important component of spirituality is self improvement. But, it is impossible to embark on self improvement without knowing where your starting point is. To get a starting point, you need to do a self-inventory and find out what your assets are and in what areas that you need work.
Recovery doesn’t happen in isolation. The individual in recovery from mental illness and substance abuse needs professionals in his or her corner to help navigate uncertain times, deal with stress, overcome marginalized employment or living conditions, build skills and/or continue improvement in areas of cognitive ability, among others. After completion of a treatment program forsubstance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorder, counseling should be continued on a regular basis. The length of timewill vary depending on the individual’s needs and progress. There’s no one-size-fits-all plan for such individuals, just as there is no defined blueprint for any person in recovery from addiction.
One thing is certain: With the prevalence of serious mental illness and substance abuse or dependence in America today, this is something that we’d better get right. What may be an issue or problem that your neighbor or co-worker has to deal with today in their family may tomorrow beone that you and your loved ones will need to address.
We believe that the physical aspect of recovery from addiction is often neglected or minimized. It is a great accomplishment to stay clean and sober for any period. However, a healthy recovery is a balance of the mind, body and spirit. Before embarking upon the physical component of any recovery program, it is imperative that the recovering individual obtain an accurate and comprehensive assessment of his current health status.
For the best chance of lasting recovery, a drug addict or alcoholic needs to make comprehensive changes. That means taking care of medical or psychiatric conditions that can lead to relapse, creating a safe and secure living and working environment, and, importantly, rebuilding sober support networks, particularly with family members. Because family members can be an invaluable source of long-term recovery support, it is important that these people get involved in the treatment process. An educated and united family can play a strong, supportive role in the recovery process. Family members should make every effort to get involved in the treatment process, for the benefit of every person in the family.
Learning to balance these multiple responsibilities is excellent preparation for transitioning back into daily life without drugs and alcohol. Our life skills classes also help prepare residents for success reintegration by helping them strengthen important life skills such as budgeting and money management, job-seeking skills, communication, time management, and nutrition and healthy meal preparation.
Personal Professional Services
An important thing to know about finding a job while first out of an addiction treatment program is that it should be simple. A good job for developing life skills would be one in a mall or retail; something that is very simple and essentially stress free. The importance is that while a recovering addict is working on their spiritual and mental selves there should be very little stress distraction from a job. The physical side of recovering will follow when the spiritual and mental selves are in a good place.
