The idea at the base of family therapy is that mental health conditions—such as addiction—don’t occur in a vacuum. Instead, they are often caused by conflict, and in turn, affect family units.
Here at Empowered Recovery, we know the troubles someone faces when an addiction arises can touch every part of their life. We are determined to provide someone with every tool possible to help them build the power necessary to overcome addiction. In many instances, family therapy is an important component of this.
Family therapy is viewed as a highly effective form of therapy for groups of people in a range of different life circumstances. They offer a host of benefits to improve family relationships.
Some of the benefits of getting family therapy at our center include:
Combined, the above provides an effective blend of therapeutic tools that supports families in overcoming hurdles and maladaptive cycles within their functioning. When carried out during family therapy, they also unlock the healing potential of each person’s love.
Usually, family therapy sessions begin by joining the client and their chosen family members in a room with a psychotherapist. Sometimes, however, the client themselves may not be present. Family members may also receive some one-to-one sessions with the psychotherapist.
Family therapy sessions usually last between fifty minutes and one hour and, in most instances, are completed over the space of three months. However, the individual and their needs are at the center of treatment. This makes sure their treatment program is as unique as they are. If longer or shorter sessions for a different length of time are required, then that’s exactly what we’ll deliver.
