It’s common for most people to assume that the only person who needs treatment is the addict. However, addiction affects every member of your family in different ways.
When a person is struggling with substance abuse and addiction, family relationships become strained under the increased pressure and stress. Family members and loved ones suffer emotionally, which can damage relationships. Of course, the person caught in the grip of addiction often doesn’t understand that their substance abuse and addiction can be so deeply intertwined with their complex family relationships. They often don’t realize the effect their behavior has on those around them.
The addiction specialists at The Carter Treatment Center see many people struggling to overcome the cycle of addiction who don’t always understand the important roles family members can play in their journey to recovery. Our innovative addiction treatment programs integrate family therapy sessions into your treatment plan. On some occasions, your spouse or family members may be asked to participate in your therapy session.
What to Expect in Family Sessions
Family sessions are designed to provide a forum for people living with a recovering addict to learn and understand the best ways to provide support. Your family learns how to help you take positive steps towards living a life free from addiction over the long term.
Throughout our family program, our addiction specialists work with you to identify any negative or limiting beliefs you have towards yourself that may have triggered the self-destructive behaviors associated with substance abuse and addiction. We also work to discover any underlying factors that may have influenced your life with family that may have been formed when you were a child.
During your family sessions, you’ll learn positive ways to overcome underlying addictive factors in order to start the healing process. With involvement from your spouse or other family members, you’ll also learn to strengthen family bonds and rebuild damaged relationships.
If you or someone you know is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, contact The Carter Treatment Center in Cumming at (678) 737-4430 or Suwanee at (678) 498-6313. We’ll help you and your family members learn the best ways to support each other on your path to recovery from addiction.
