All too often, relationships with family members are casualties of substance abuse. Even families that were once extremely close can be torn apart by addiction, causing pain and grief to everyone in the family unit. At Del Arroyo Recovery Center in Agoura Hills, we’re dedicated to providing support for families in distress.
Rebuilding relationships with family members is an important part of recovery for both the family and the individual. We provide integrated, holistic family therapy care for everyone involved.
The Importance of Family Involvement in Treatment for Addiction
A substance use disorder or mental health condition isn’t just an individual problem—it’s a family issue. In fact, family dynamics often play a large role in a person’s motivation, resources, and overall ability to succeed in addiction treatment. Family support can take different forms, from paying for rehab to simply providing love and encouragement. All of these things can reduce stress and make the process easier.
Likewise, family members of addicted individuals often need support for themselves. At our Southern California treatment center, we provide a supportive environment and behavioral therapies for both sides of the issue, helping families understand their role and express how they feel. This two-way family therapy conversation is important to sustaining long-term sobriety, mental health, and good family relationships.
