Healing Family From Addiction
Recognizing this concept, allows us to truly understand the impact addiction has not only on an individual but also on his/her families and friends. Watching someone you care about who is lost in this cycle, is itself traumatic and life-altering. In order to effectively break this cycle, it is imperative that we not only look at healing the pain in our client — both past and present — but address the trauma accrued by the family and friends while living with him/her. Gaining sobriety, in and of itself, does not break the cycle of addiction. Only until the collective trauma endured by both the family AND the person struggling with addiction, will the cycle truly be broken. Our commitment goes beyond our client; we understand the importance of HEALING FAMILIES FROM THE INSIDE OUTTM
Family Weekend Program
Healing Springs offers one of a kind family weekend programs that addresses each family’s unique needs. These programs are held each month, Thursday evening through noon on Sunday. You are encouraged to attend during your loved one’s treatment stay with us, but you may attend after he/she has discharged if needed. Our family weekend not only offers a comprehensive program overview but also provides emotional support and connections to other families who share the same struggle. During the intensive, you will become familiar with our Integrated Addiction Model which will provide you and your loved one with a relatable understanding of addiction as well as a common language for healthier communication within your family system. You will also identify multi-generational emotional and behavioral patterns in your family through a genogram activity. And finally, each family will be involved in a personalized group/family psychotherapeutic process with your loved one facilitated by our clinical team of experts.
Clients will have the opportunity to engage in family therapy while in treatment. With clinical discretion and collaboration with the client, family members and friends will be involved based on readiness, availability and clinical appropriateness. Common topics include rebuilding trust, addiction and trauma education, triggers and emotional regulation skills, discharge planning and relapse prevention.
