Family therapy
Family therapy is a type of psychological counseling that helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. In the context of addiction treatment, it acknowledges the impact of substance abuse not only on the individual but also on their family, who often bear the brunt of the consequences and can play a crucial role in the person's recovery. Addiction is often referred to as a "family disease" because of its significant impact on the family system. It can lead to broken trust, strained relationships, and emotional pain among family members. On the other hand, the family can also be a source of strength and support for someone working towards recovery.
Our Process

At Studio City Recovery, Family therapy is conducted by experienced therapists who understand the complexities of addiction and the toll it can take on families. We work with each family to create a personalized plan that addresses their unique needs and circumstances. Family therapy is an integral part of the treatment process, and it's utilized in several ways:

  1. Education: Family therapy provides an opportunity to educate family members about the nature of addiction, its causes, its effects, and the process of recovery. This understanding can demystify the person's behavior and help family members respond more effectively.
  2. Healing Relationships: Substance abuse can lead to broken trust and damaged relationships within the family. Family therapy can help repair these relationships by improving communication, resolving conflicts, and rebuilding trust.
  3. Support for the Family: Family therapy provides a supportive environment for family members to express their feelings, concerns, and fears. It acknowledges the trauma and stress they may have experienced and helps them learn healthy coping mechanisms.
  4. Building a Supportive Environment: Family therapy can equip family members with the skills to support their loved one's recovery. This includes setting boundaries, developing coping mechanisms, and understanding how to support without enabling addictive behaviors.
  5. Addressing Family Dynamics: Some family dynamics can contribute to or exacerbate substance abuse. Family therapy can help identify and address these patterns, leading to a healthier family system that supports the person's recovery.
Our Goal
By including family therapy in our treatment approach, we acknowledge the crucial role family plays in addiction recovery. It allows for healing and growth not just for the individual with addiction, but for their entire family, helping create a stronger, more supportive environment for lasting recovery.
