Ohio Family Addiction Therapy Program

Addiction is often called a “family disease,” as family dynamics are often impaired as the result of a loved one’s substance use. Family dynamics can also contribute to substance use or inhibit successful recovery. Identifying unhealthy relationship dynamics or habits helps not only the individual, but also the family recover from the impact of addiction.

At OARC, we encourage families to engage in treatment with their loved one through family therapy sessions. Learn more about our approach to family therapy below and how we help families foster long term addiction recovery.

Benefits of Family Therapy in Addiction Treatment

Many families simply don’t have the expertise and tools to deal with a loved one’s substance abuse. While their minds and hearts are in the right place, their attempts to help often further enable continued substance abuse. Feeling powerless over their loved one’s addiction, families often begin to question where they went wrong, or if there is anything they could have done differently. Combined with stress, worry, or even anger, this can have a detrimental impact on mental health.

The reality is that some individuals have genetic or psychological facts that triggered substance abuse outside of their family’s control. Addiction is a disease, and many find they simply aren’t able to break their cycle on their own, even with a strong desire to change. By understanding addiction is not indicative of your loved one’s feelings of love or respect for you, families can begin to heal and learn new ways to support their loved one.

Our family addiction therapy program in Ohio provides much-needed education on the disease of addiction and helps family members learn and practice new and healthier communication or coping skills. Family addiction therapy also allows the entire family to take part in support groups as well as understand and prepare for the potential of a relapse – and what to do if that happens. To see if you and your family can benefit from family therapy contact us today at 800-481-8457.

What Are the Components of Ohio Addiction Recovery Center’s Family Therapy Program?

Upon admittance at OARC, an experienced therapist will perform an initial counseling session in order to evaluate the current family dynamic and put together a treatment plan that reflects your unique needs. This treatment plan can be altered according to how fast the family and client are progressing through their current approach.

Another important component of our program is our small group sessions in which patients and their families sit together to work through the issues that led to their loved one’s addiction. These groups allow family members to explore their emotional responses to addictions in a safe, encouraging and empowering environment.

Our Ohio family addiction therapy program also provides excellent educational opportunities to help you better understand the disease of addiction. Various lecturers will cover a variety of topics related to addiction and recovery in an interactive style that allows for full participation from all family members. Among the topics covered in this educational series include 12-step and other sober support groups, life and coping skills, the emotional and environmental changes in recovery and personal responsibility for one’s own recovery among other topics

Most importantly, our Ohio family therapy groups allow family members and their significant others meet in small group settings to discuss drug and alcohol rehab and how addiction has impacted their lives. We also offer marital group counseling for couples who are married or in committed relationships. These groups explore the sometimes formidable challenges that are inherent in these close relationships and how drug addiction can further complicate relationships.
