Addiction is a family disease. When family members feel powerless, hopeless and depressed, they can become as disabled by their loved one’s addiction as their loved one. Without the proper support of family, addiction recovery can be more challenging and less likely to occur long term.
At The Treatment Center, we provide a full 2-day intensive family workshop that gives loved ones the necessary tools to begin their own recovery process, develop their resilience, and strengthen interfamily relationships. We also provide support group sessions for patients.

Why Attend Our Workshops?
Our family program consists of workshops that occur every three weeks. We provide a two-day intensive workshop with licensed therapists who have years of experience. Families who attend our workshops can also meet with their loved one’s primary therapist for a one-hour session.
In addition to our family workshops, we hold weekly family dynamic groups for those patients who are in residential treatment. During our workshops, we provide a variety of evidence-based therapies such as:
• Psychodrama - an interactive, creative approach that uses guided drama, reenactment, and role-playing to address and work through problems. We use role-play as a visual representation of the family dynamic to help loved ones gain new insights, resolve issues, and become aware of unhealthy and healthy behaviors.
• Family sculpting - an interactive approach that breaks though emotional barriers by reenacting each family member’s behavior during a particular setting. Through role-play, participants gain eye-opening awareness on how they enable their loved one’s addiction, and how they can develop ways to let go.
• Social atom - a type of therapy where a person centers himself as the “nucleus of the atom” or family. This method helps explore emotional and physical distance and closeness in relationships. From there, participants can see the quality of their interpersonal relationships whether they’re positive, negative, or mixed.
Our program also addresses issues with co-dependency. Co-dependency is an emotional and behavioral condition when a person excessively sacrifices their own needs in order to meet the needs of others in relationships. With therapy, the co-dependent learns how to change their behavior as their loved one’s enabler and let go of emotionally destructive behavior.
With the innovative and effective therapeutic methods above, we help family members improve their family dynamic by learning about the disease of addiction, addressing codependency, boundary setting, and the recovery process for the entire family.
If you want to learn about the disease of addiction and how our program helps the family dynamic, feel free to call one of our admissions counselors today at (877) 392-3342. We’re available 24 hours day, 7 days a week.
