The Grand Falls Recovery is here to help heal families who have been affected by addiction.​

Introduction

Addictions are personal, but the consequences have the potential to destroy the whole family or those closest to the person struggling with a drug problem. Since every family is a system of interconnected individuals, a change in one person is bound to bring about changes in all the others. When one family member experiences addiction the entire family is impacted. Similarly, a healthy family environment can help individuals battling drug addiction to attain sobriety and achieve long-lasting wellness.

This explains why family therapy is such a crucial component of addiction treatment in Missouri and recovery. It helps family members understand how addiction affects them and arms them with tools for repairing and improving their relationships. People can sometimes become addicted to alcohol and other substances because of dysfunction at home and therapy gives family members a chance to understand such risk factors and do their best to avoid or prevent them.

Addiction also changes family dynamics and it’s not uncommon for family members to feel angry, neglected, guilty, and ashamed thanks to their loved one’s drug abuse. While their loved one gets to go for individual therapy or seek out some other form of drug treatment, other family members rarely know where to turn for guidance and support. Family therapy gives them a way to let out their feelings about addiction while gaining insight into how their behavior might have influenced the situation and how they can bring about positive change.

How Does Family Therapy for Drug Treatment Work?​

Family therapy sessions are led by therapists who understand the group dynamics in a family and how each person is affected by others in the family group. Family therapists often have experience in helping each individual in the family to get better and interact more positively within the family unit.

Before family therapy for drug addiction can start, the client has to identify family members who they think or feel should be included in the counseling process. Family members who meet these criteria are usually those who:

Maintain the household
Are key in providing support
Mainly provide financial help and resources
The client has a strong and enduring emotional bond with

Clients normally decide to include family members, their significant others, friends, or coworkers as part of their family for therapy purposes.

In many cases, families have already identified the individual battling addiction as the “problem” within the family. However, there is no blame in family therapy and the focus remains on assisting the whole family to recover, pull together, and move forward as a unit.

Some of the common services offered during family therapy include:

Private family sessions where the therapist meets with one or more of the family members.
Group sessions where the family, the client included, meets and discusses issues surrounding the addiction, recovery, and their familial relationships.
Intensive family education sessions often include family activities aimed at teaching them healthier ways to interact with each other.
Individual counseling is where the therapist has one-on-one sessions with spouses or children of recovering addicts.
12-step meetings for families of addicts where different families struggling with similar challenges meet, learn, and gain support from each other.

Coping Mechanisms for Families Dealing with Addiction​

Families that have one or more of their members dealing with substance abuse often resort to unhealthy behaviors to cope with the addiction. These include:

Enabling behaviors – where family members unwittingly support a loved one’s drug problem by not allowing them to experience the consequences of their behavior. This makes it easy for the loved one to keep using their substance of choice. Examples of enabling behaviors include – purchasing drugs or alcohol for the family member, paying bills for the family member so they don’t get into financial trouble, or excusing their violent or manipulative tendencies and drug habits.

Denial – The family members refuse to acknowledge the drug addiction and try to minimize its severity. They also bottle up their feelings to avoid upsetting their loved ones.

Co-dependency – the dysfunction in the family leads some members to become obsessively concerned with their loved ones’ feelings while simultaneously ignoring their own. As a result, they develop low self-esteem or have misplaced anger that often comes out as outbursts against other household members. They might also develop unhealthy behaviors e.g. over-eating to help them cope with the stressful situation they have found themself in.

Goals for Families in Drug Therapy​

Family therapists often have a few goals in mind when working with families troubled by drug addiction.

The first is to help the family overcome any obstacles that might hinder their recovery. Since most families turn to denial, enabling behaviors, or co-dependency in a bid to cope with their loved one’s addiction, they must be taught to identify and break these habits. For instance, some families with drug addicts end up giving their loved ones drugs in a bid to avoid violent or destructive behavior.

Secondly, family therapy aims at restoring normal, healthy family roles. Addiction causes chaos and disorganization as it destroys families and inverts roles. Those from such families normally have trouble setting limits or boundaries. It is normal to find kids taking care of their parents. In therapy, families get to focus on restoring appropriate family roles, improving communication with each other, and creating a safe family environment with the appropriate roles.

Some family drug treatment programs are big on educating families affected by drug abuse to identify behaviors or thoughts that create perfect conditions for addiction at home. They are also educated on the effects of addiction, what the recovery process entails, and the role they have to play to support their loved one’s recovery.

Grand Falls Recovery Center is here to hold your hand through recovery. We understand that long-term sobriety is dependent on healthy relationships. Recovery cannot thrive without the support of your loved ones. This is why family therapy plays a key role in the treatment we provide at Grand Falls. This quality care betters the ability for one to successfully recover and stay in recovery. Begin your recovery journey today with the Grand Falls Recovery Center team.
