Many patients who begin a detox or inpatient treatment program are unaware of the damage they have done to themselves and those around them. Rebuilding relationships cannot begin until you have a clear perspective and see how your addiction hurts your family and friends. That is why family therapy is an essential element to any successful addiction treatment program.
At Arkview Recovery Center, we know how essential family is to our patients. That is why we bring them into your addiction therapy so that everyone can begin to heal the wounds addiction has created. If you or someone you love has damaged relationships with their family and wants to try and rebuild that relationship, call 717.744.0756 or complete our online form today to learn more about how family therapy can help rebuild relationships and increase the chances of maintaining your recovery.
A Supportive Family Environment Is Essential After Rehab
At the end of your inpatient addiction treatment program, you will need a supportive home environment to foster your recovery and help you maintain your recovery. A substantial number of patients discover that their addiction comes from their families, whether through genetics, financial struggles, or abuse.
Despite this, your family can be a supportive element in your recovery. They will be included in your addiction treatment program to help everyone learn more about addiction and how you can restore your family connections now that addiction is no longer controlling your actions and thoughts.
During your family therapy sessions, you will learn how powerful addiction can be and what it will take to break its grip on all of you. During your time with us, you will learn:
- How addiction affects behavior and changes thinking patterns
- To better understand the relationship between addiction and mental health
- More effective communication with everyone in the family
- To engage in open and honest communications about family dynamics and conflicts between parents, spouses, and siblings to promote healing and change
With time and effort, many wounds can heal as you begin rebuilding relationships with each family member. At Arkview Recovery Center, our goal is to help you build healthy coping skills and family connections as you learn how to live with addiction and regain control of your life.
