The Impact of Substance Use on Families

If you or your loved one is struggling with addiction, then you likely intimately know the countless ways addiction changes emotions and showcases the effects of substance use on the family. Addiction doesn’t just affect the person taking the drugs or alcohol—it can create a changing family dynamic, one that requires its own measure of support and attention.

At Woodland Recovery Center, we understand the unique complexities that revolve around this situation. Our team is dedicated to providing you and your family with compassionate insight, education, counseling, and support. Our aim is to help you all progress toward healthier and more positive relationships together.

Family Therapy for Addiction

Healing from addiction and family therapy go hand-in-hand. However, it’s your choice to involve your family in your addiction treatment plan. Our family therapy program offers a supportive environment for everyone to participate. We believe that by involving the entire family in the recovery process, we can help create lasting change and improve relationships. Our family therapy program serves several purposes, such as:

  • Rectify the damage done to both parties
  • Uproot negative thought processes, behaviors, and emotions
  • Replace negative thoughts with positive and healthful ones
  • Support healing for both the person in treatment and their family members

Family therapy for addiction becomes a unique tool to further develop and implement the positive coping skills you’ve learned within other aspects of your treatment while engaging you to learn even more. It is an adjunct therapeutic method that helps you to re-establish yourself in positive and powerful ways within your family dynamic so that you can learn to heal and work together more efficiently as a family. Your family will have numerous opportunities to learn how they can better sustain and encourage you throughout the duration of your recovery.

  • Pinpoint ways in which your family members may be enabling your drug or alcohol use, and teach you healthier ways to support your loved one
  • Identity and work toward resolving any family conflict
  • Overcome judgment and blame and begin forging trust
  • Uproot denial and replace it with a positive and focused awareness, supported by good coping skills
  • Establish healthy boundaries

Is Family Therapy Suitable for Your Recovery?

Deciding whether family therapy is suitable for your recovery is a personal choice that requires careful consideration. At Woodland Recovery Center, we believe that the involvement of family can significantly enhance the recovery process, offering a foundation of support that is invaluable.

However, the suitability of family therapy depends on individual circumstances, including the dynamics within your family, the stage of your recovery, and your own readiness to engage in this form of therapy. We welcome you to discuss your specific situation with our compassionate team, who can provide guidance and help you determine if integrating family therapy into your treatment plan could benefit you and your loved ones. Our goal is to ensure that every aspect of your recovery supports your path toward healing and rebuilding healthy relationships.
