Family Therapy: A Powerful Force against Addiction and Mental Health Concerns
According to the Mayo Clinic: Family therapy is a type of counseling (psychotherapy) that helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is usually provided by a psychologist, clinical social worker or licensed therapist. Family therapy may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times.

Family can be the most significant part of their loved one’s support system. When the family participates in their loved one’s treatment it helps reduce the stigma of going to treatment. It helps to address the family use beliefs and behaviors. It helps to teach families to be mutually supportive and to make healthy decisions rather than those based on fears or manipulation. It helps families to formulate realistic expectations, understand triggers, and communicate from love rather than anger. It assists in identifying negative behavior patterns in the relationship with their loved one and it focuses the family to get back to living their own lives. Caring for themselves is a healthy choice. It is not being selfish but rather self love.
