Addiction impacts everyone in the family unit. Family therapy offers the opportunity to have someone listen to how the patient’s actions have impacted the lives of those around them. If relational problems are driving loved ones away, intervention strategies are formulated with the patient’s recovery in mind. This relationship between the family member and therapist leads to a more rounded plan for change. If the family member feels the need to have more extensive therapy sessions, these are offered and can be discussed with Santé’s Family Therapy Coordinator. Santé truly believes that the family plays an integral part of addiction treatment.
