A family is a system. And in any system – each part is related to all other parts.
Therefore, change in any part of the system will bring about changes in all other parts.
Family Recovery at A WISE Retreat
We offer family therapy as part of our addiction treatment plan and encourage the whole family to take part in the recovery process.
We know that the individual suffering from the disease of addiction is not the only one suffering. Addiction is a family disease that effects everyone in the entire family. That is why family therapy is a very important aspect of our Power Recovery Treatment Plan.
We also offer group therapy sessions – because group therapy allows people to come together and gain strength through shared experiences and support.
Group therapy also demonstrates to participants that they are not alone in their struggles. Millions of individuals are affected by the disease of addiction world-wide.
Family Recovery Process
We focus on family dynamics, healing family relationships, strengthening family bonds, and problem solving.
We educate family members on:
• What is a Dual Diagnosis
• What is addiction
• What addiction is not
• Stages of change
• Environmental triggers
• Relapse prevention
• How to support each other during the healing process
Sadly, among all the family members who are impacted by the disease of addiction – no one suffers more than the children.
Our family therapy sessions are facilitated by professional Marriage and Family Therapists MFT’s – and are age appropriate for everyone involved.
At A WISE Retreat – we provide a warm home-like environment that is perfect for family therapy sessions and family visits.
