Addiction can wreak havoc in families and relationships; therefore, successful treatment often incorporates loved ones. This can encourage family members and loved ones to support the individual’s new skills and behaviors after treatment is over.
It can also help the family learn to recognize maladaptive behaviors, building a healthier way of relating to one another. Family therapy is a valuable tool in helping an addict accomplish a successful recovery.
The goal of family therapy and couples counseling at Newsong Recovery is to engage the participants in dialogues focused on improving problem-solving, communication, and conflict resolution skills, ultimately helping the whole family heal.
Treatment professionals employ a variety of family counseling models to meet residents’ needs during the process of recovery. Each of the models has something unique to offer to certain populations, and, in the hands of our skill leaders, each can provide powerful therapeutic experiences for family members. Common therapies used at Newsong Recovery include:
● Multidimensional family therapy
● Brief strategic family therapy
● Functional family therapy
To create a successful outcome, family and/or couples counseling will be finely tailored to your own unique, specific needs.
Newsong Recovery’s family therapy program is closely supervised by a team of professionals with more than 35 years of experience using the latest evidence-based approaches to treat the whole family system, not just the individual with substance use disorder.
At Newsong Recovery, your residential treatment will begin with a comprehensive assessment to determine the most effective family and/or couples counseling services based on your substance use and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems as well as your age, gender, ethnicity, and culture.
Individuals progress through treatment at various rates, so there is no predetermined length of treatment. Generally, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness. Treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.
