Family Programs

At The Recovery Team, we acknowledge that addiction impacts not just the individual but also their close ones. Hence, we provide specialized family programs to aid family members like parents or children in supporting their loved ones. Our programs offer counseling, education, and support to help families handle the complexities of addiction and build robust relationships.

Our family program aims to educate families on how to provide healthy support to their loved ones while also receiving the guidance they may need to help them progress. We understand that addiction is a complex issue, and our experts are dedicated to providing compassionate care to everyone involved in the recovery process.

By involving families in the recovery process, we aim to strengthen the support system for our patients. Our competent professionals are dedicated to delivering empathetic and efficacious care to everyone seeking help for addiction.

Who Are Family Programs For?

Our family program is aimed to aid and support family members during their loved one’s recovery journey. Eligible participants for this program are:

  • Family members who have given their consent to take part in the program activities
  • Family members of patients currently enrolled in our drug and alcohol treatment programs
  • Family members who seek to gain a deeper understanding of their loved one’s struggles and want to participate in the therapeutic process
  • Family members who wish to learn how to be a supportive and sober presence for their loved ones
  • Family members who want to help their loved ones achieve a healthier, happier, and overall better life.

Supporting Families Affected by Addiction

Substance abuse affects not only the addicts themselves but also their family members and loved ones. However, the family’s needs are often overlooked in the process of dealing with addiction.

While the addicts’ health and mental concerns are of utmost importance, it is imperative to focus on the needs of family members as well. They often experience high levels of stress and anxiety as their loved one undergoes addiction treatment.

At The Recovery Team in South Florida, we understand how challenging this time can be for families affected by addiction. We believe that recovery is possible not only for the individual struggling with addiction but also for their entire family. Our family support services are designed to support and assist family members throughout their loved one’s journey to recovery.

Learn Interpersonal Skills for Long Term Recovery

Establishing healthy relationships with family members and practicing honest communication are crucial components of a successful recovery. However, addiction can damage these relationships and make honest communication difficult.

At The Recovery Team in Florida, we recognize the importance of healthy interpersonal relationships and provide the resources and support to encourage open and honest communication between patients and their families. We believe that strengthening these relationships is essential for a successful recovery and a healthy future.
