Millions of families are affected by the devastating effects of addiction everyday. Addiction is a family disease, so it’s crucial for the family to be involved in the treatment process. When the family is actively involved in the treatment of their addicted loved one, studies show the person affected is more likely to succeed and stay clean.
Evoke Wellness Coconut Creek is thrilled to offer an outstanding family program for all of our clients. Once everyone learns about the disease of addiction, therapy can begin and the entire family unit can start to heal.

What Is Family Therapy?

Family therapy involves the family of an active addict working with a therapist to resolve family dysfunction and conflict and improve relationships. By processing and expressing feelings, family therapy helps to improve communication skills and develop healthier and stronger family dynamics. Family therapy provides family support and is an integral part of recovery for both the addict and the family unit.

The Value of Family Therapy

Family therapy helps resolve family issues and maladaptive patterns. Addiction brings about resentments, estrangement, and misunderstandings, family therapy helps to restore balance within the family, and the well-being of all family members. Family therapy can help focus on a variety of problems that addiction can cause: marital strain, conflict resolution, substance abuse, relationship dynamics, eldercare, health concerns and mental health, parenting, grief, trauma, domestic violence, infidelity, cheating, addiction stigmas, communication and financial problems, and improved family function.

How Are Family Programs Helpful In Recovery?

Family programs allow all family members to be present and active in counseling and intervention. Family programs can include individual and group counseling with a licensed therapist. One-on-one counseling with a therapist can provide individual insights and prepare for the entire family coming together. Group counseling allows for all members to share their emotions and feelings related to the experiences they’ve had. This helps the family learn if they have been helpful as they intended to be or whether they have unknowingly caused harm.
Family programs help family members resolve conflict and develop closer relationships. They help the family heal from the destruction that the addiction has caused. Those that have been enabling the addict can learn to identify and stop the damaging, enabling behaviors. The family gains a better understanding of the disease of addiction so they can better empathize with what the addict is going through. Family programs help to teach healthy coping and problem-solving skills.

The Three C's To Addiction

Through family therapy and family programs, the family of an individual that struggles with addiction will learn there are three C’s to addiction.
Addiction is a disease. It can be treated, but cannot be cured. No matter what an addict may say, you are not the cause of their addiction. Lastly, you cannot control their addiction or make them stop.
At Evoke Wellness, our family programs are run by a team of licensed professionals. We follow the latest treatment modalities so that every family receives the most up to date and best care possible.
