Family Therapy ProgramAddiction is a disease, and recovery is an ongoing process. With the right medical attention, therapy, and a support system, those who are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction can soon resume their normal lives. A family therapy program can go a long way in helping the client rebuild strained relationships and encourage loved ones to play an active role in the healing process.

Group therapy may involve attending meetings with fellow patients, peers, or even family members. The objective is to foster a sense of community, develop interpersonal skills and encourage a deeper understanding of the self.

If you or a loved one is struggling with a substance abuse disorder, you can reach out to Coalition Recovery in Tampa Bay for help. Evidence-based therapies are an effective way to deal with addiction. For more information, call us today at 888.707.2873.

Why We Offer a Family Therapy Program

Addiction is a social disease affecting not just the individual but their social circle as well. As part of the family therapy program, we work with the client’s family members, friends, and well-wishers to build a strong ongoing support system that hastens their recovery and prevents chances of a relapse.

A family therapy program is vital to the recovery process for several reasons.

Family Therapy Addresses Trauma

Often, addiction issues are rooted in past trauma, neglect, or abuse. Parents with a history of drug/alcohol abuse may pass it onto their children, along with other unhealthy habits. At Coalition Recovery, we work with the client to address any underlying issues and co-occurring disorders that are often connected to family circumstances.

Family therapy is often an important part of our overall treatment program. In family therapy, the therapist works with all family members to identify and address any dysfunctional patterns or behaviors that may have contributed to the development of addiction. Family therapy can also help to improve communication and relationships within the family. This type of therapy can be beneficial for both the individual struggling with addiction and the family members alike.

Education and Counseling

Misconceptions about addiction abound. Therefore, we provide a safe space for family members to ask questions and educate them on the nature of addiction and effective symptom management. It’s important to remember that addiction is not a choice or a moral failing. Instead, it is a chronic brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences.

Improve Communication and Self-Awareness

Family conflicts can often escalate. We watch for signs of aggressive/violent behavior and facilitate clear and honest communication between both parties without either feeling slighted or misunderstood.

Coalition Recovery’s Group Therapy and Aftercare Program in Tampa Bay

In addition to family therapy, we also provide other forms of group therapy in the form of regular support group meetings. At Coalition Recovery, we use both medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and evidence-based therapies in our addiction treatment programs. We also incorporate other holistic approaches as needed on a case-by-case basis.

Our group therapy programs are designed keeping EBT principles in mind and include:

  • 12-step meetings: A cornerstone of our program, these meetings help patients stay sober and connected to a supportive community
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy: This is an individualized form of therapy that helps patients identify and then change negative thought patterns and behaviors
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): DBT skills training groups help patients learn new coping mechanisms to deal with triggers and stressful situations
  • Relapse prevention therapy: This type of therapy helps patients identify their triggers and develop a plan to avoid them

We also believe that addiction treatment doesn’t end with a detox. Therefore, we provide excellent aftercare services in the following ways:

  • Ongoing clinical care
  • Family education and counseling
  • Access to sober housing
  • Regular support group meetings
  • Check-ins with a personal therapist
  • Life skills training
  • Job preparation

We understand that clients have different needs and preferences. As such, we have various options available, which can be tailored to each individual’s recovery process.
