The Importance of a Family Counseling Program

a family counseling program is beneficial for these peopleOne of the most important decisions you can make is to support your loved one in seeking treatment. This decision is the first step in starting your recovery process. By involving the entire family in the recovery process, you’ll bring comfort to a troubled loved one. Family counseling not only allows relatives to rebuild relationships but also educates them about addiction as a disease.

Often, substance use, trauma, and mental health issues cause isolation because the user feels shame about what they are experiencing. They’ll try to hide it with avoidance, which has a devastating effect on family relationships. The common feelings in family systems with substance use and addiction include:

  • Isolation
  • Grief
  • Anger
  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Sense of responsibility for causing the addiction

There is no reason that you should have to live with these feelings impacting your family. With the help of a professional addiction treatment program, your family can get the healing you need.

The Family System

At Red Oak Recovery, we believe in treating the family system with the same compassion and care as the individual participating in addiction treatment programs. During family counseling, family members will have a licensed therapist guide them through the journey. For instance, families will have weekly educational webinars, phone sessions with their therapist, and possibly assignments, depending on the family system’s needs. The engagement of the entire family is crucial in creating a healthy, functioning family system to support your loved one in early recovery.

When combined with our other therapeutic services, family counseling can help everyone involved recover. Call us today at 828.382.9699 to learn more about Red Oak Recovery.
