Addiction may feel like an isolating condition, but it actually has a significant effect on those around you. This is why family therapy is an essential part of the healing process. The hardest part about dealing with addiction – whether it’s your own or a loved one’s struggle – is the overwhelming feeling of hopelessness. It feels like you’re all alone in a life or death fight. Guess what? There is help, there is support, and there is a solution.

What Is Family Therapy?

couple in a family therapy programFamily therapy is exactly what it sounds like — you sit down with your loved ones and take time to reopen lines of communication. Addiction can consume all aspect of a person’s life and leave them isolated, embarrassed, and confused. What’s worse is that many people struggling with addiction find themselves without a support system to rely on. Family therapy works to rebuild that support system.

Although people often think of their immediate family in regards to family therapy, this program isn’t just for them. You probably have close friends or coworkers who have witnessed your path into addiction and worry for you.

Furthermore, you may have lost contact with them. These individuals are more than welcome in a family therapy West Palm Beach offers. If they’re important to you, then they’re important to us.

What to Expect In the Family Therapy West Palm Beach Offers

Family therapy is much like any other form of talk therapy or support group. In our program, you and your family sit down with a trained therapist who acts as a mediator. During this time, everyone can share how they’re feeling. This is a time for open, honest discussion, and the mediator will ensure that everyone is heard.

If you’ve lost contact or developed a strained relationship with someone you love, the mediator will help you rebuild those lines of communication. At the end of the day, it’s your loved ones want to be there for you and see you succeed. In recovery, they will be your strongest allies for lasting sobriety.
