Substance Abuse Family Therapy


What is Family Therapy

Family therapy or counseling is an approach to mental wellness that seeks to improve the health of the entire family. Usually, this form of treatment is in response to a major life changing event, such as divorce, death of a loved one, or some other hardship. Substance abuse, drug addiction, rehab and recovery all have a very serious toll on the user as well as their loved ones. Family therapy is a great way to work on the broken relationships, or fractures caused by a substance use disorder. Through various techniques and mediated discussions, a family counselor can assist in rebuilding what was once lost. Some of the most common situations that a family therapist is trained to handle include, but are not limited to: •Marital Conflicts
