Family therapy is often short term. Family therapy involves all members who are able to participate at the given time. These sessions can enable families to strengthen their interpersonal skills even after therapy is completed. Group and individual discussion and education focuses on understanding the impact of alcoholism and drug abuse on the individual and their family, learning the effects of healthy communication, and introduction to 12-Step philosophy for the family.
Additionally, families will be educated regarding enabling, relapse prevention, and understanding the physical, mental, and spiritual effects of addiction on the entire family system.
