ABT’s Approach to Family Therapy

At A Better Today we understand that addiction affects the entire family, not just the person that is struggling with a drug & alcohol addiction. The families of our clients have told us that a negative change in one member of the family impacts the whole family and affects each person differently. Children of a loved one struggling with substance abuse can harbor different feelings than the spouse. Their addiction inflict stress to a breaking point.

Addiction has the potential to test family bonds causing the whole family to experience situations where they themselves are forced to compromises their morals and make bad decisions out of love. Sometimes the family must witness the struggling addict manipulate, steal, and commit crimes to hide their growing addiction. Family therapy focuses on educating the whole family, young and old, about addiction being a disease and how to handle the negative repercussions of drug abuse. Special fellowship groups like Nar-Anon and Al-Anon can offer support and healing.

A Better today has adopted the three C’s involved in family therapy that help create a deeper understanding of your loved one’s addiction. The three C’s are:

You did not cause the addiction.

You cannot control the addiction.

You cannot cure the addiction.

A Better Today’s Family Day Events offers a pleasant environment to learn and heal together during treatment.

ABT’s Approach Focuses on Family Therapy During Treatment to Ensure Long Term Success

ABT understands that having a strong support system within the family ensures long term sobriety and dedication to their recovery plan. We encourage family involvement in the recovery process with educational session on the addicted brain and co-occurring disorders.

ABT’s Family Day Events offers the whole family a wonderful day with their loved one during their treatment. Rebuilding those bridges and creating good memories is important for the whole family and the healing process. Master’s level therapists offer literature and presentations on addiction as a disease and what to expect after treatment.

Family members of graduated clients have shared their feelings of frustration and helplessness with us during their loved one’s active addiction. After attending Family Day Events, they were confident that they could help them stay sober while still respecting their aftercare program.

It is beneficial to have the support of their families while seeking treatment; the hope and care you feel for your addicted loved one plays a big part in their recovery. Leaving our facility with confidence in your loved one’s treatment plan is our goal and with the feedback from our client’s family, we are achieving high success rates of long term recovery. A Better Today believes their future is worth it just as much as you do. Let us help you take back control.

Why is it Important to Rebuilding Strong Family Bonds During Drug & Alcohol Treatment?

A Better Today offers therapy sessions led by a master’s level therapist with the client during their treatment. The therapist will work as a mediator to encourage families to discuss pressing issues in a safe environment. Issues that substance abuse has caused the family can be addressed with the intentions of moving past them for a healthier relationship.

The loved one may feel overwhelmed with guilt and shame about their destructive behavior in active addiction. Communicating with their loved ones may provide a sense of closure that could encourage a positive drive to be the person they want to be when they were not influenced by drugs.

Having their family show support during the healing process is an important part to the ABT approach to drug and alcohol treatment. This makes the first steps on the journey through recovery less stressful; causing them to absorb relapse prevention and coping mechanism training with a positive attitude.

Getting involved in your family’s treatment plan in an important milestone in long term sobriety. ABT is more than happy to include the whole family to encourage long-lasting recovery.

Healing and changing takes time, commitment, dedication, effort, and a lot of patience. Furthermore, a client’s psychological, brain-chemistry, and biological must be balanced before family therapy can be beneficial for both the client and the family.

How Does A Better Today’s Family Day Event Help with Drug & Alcohol Treatment for my Loved One?

A Better Today knows it is very common for addicts to hurt the ones who love them the most. That is why we feel so passionately about the quality of service we provide each client. Family Therapy allows open discussions about their pain in a non-threatening environment. Constructive, healthy communication during and after treatment is important to ensure healthy boundaries are established and there is a level of respected shared between each family member.

Educating both the family and client is important in maintaining long term recovery. Every Saturday, ABT offers Family Day Events that provides master level presenters, literature for finding and receiving support, and good memories for the whole family. This is done in a group setting with family members of other clients.

Topics discussing the addicted brain, relapse prevention, setting boundary standards, speakers who have addicted loved ones and the destruction of enabling are some presentations that help go deeper into the struggles of addiction as a family disease.

We pride ourselves on the level of care we offer and always encourage feedback to improve our Family Day experience. A Better Today is client focused on providing the level of care that encourages long lasting recovery from substance abuse. Reach out today and trust that ABT cares about your loved one’s future just as much as you do.
