Family Therapy Activities at A Life After Recovery

While receiving addiction treatment at a rehab facility, it’s important to take part in multiple forms of addiction therapy. One form of addiction therapy that rehab patients should include in their treatment programs is family therapy. Here at A Life After Recovery, we offer a wide range of family therapy activities that close family members and friends of our patients can take part in.

Weekly Family Therapy Activities

A Life After Recovery offers various weekly family therapy activities. These activities range from standard weekly family therapy sessions to weekly family case management.

Weekly Family Therapy Sessions

One of the weekly family therapy activities that we offer here at A Life After Recovery is standard family therapy. Weekly family therapy sessions are beneficial because they provide the family members and friends of our patients the time that they need to truly learn the roles that they’ve played in the formation of their loved ones’ addictions. Otherwise, loved ones of rehab patients are often cramming all that information in one family therapy session.

Weekly family therapy sessions are also beneficial because they give the close family members and friends of rehab patients more time to learn about addiction. Addiction is a complex disorder that many people don’t understand. Unfortunately, many people harshly judge and criticize the actions of people in recovery for addiction instead of supporting them.

Other people may provide poor support for their loved ones in recovery from addiction by enabling them. By regularly attending weekly family therapy sessions though, loved ones of rehab patients can learn how to properly provide support.

Weekly Family Case Management Services

Here at A Life After Recovery, we also offer weekly case management services. Case management for addiction is when professional case managers guide their clients through addiction treatment and recovery.

Case managers guide close family members and friends of rehab patients through what they can do to support both themselves and their loved ones who are in addiction treatment and recovery.

Addiction Education Through Family Case Management

Contact

For example, case managers may arrange for loved ones of rehab patients to receive some sort of education about substance abuse. This will increase the knowledge and understanding that loved ones of rehab patients have about addiction.

In doing so, close family members and friends of rehab patients can better provide support for their loved ones. Another way that case managers will guide loved ones of rehab patients is by arranging for them to receive education or treatment for codependency.


Treatment for Codependency Through
Family Case Management

It is very common for people with addictions to develop a codependent relationship with their close family members and friends. This is because many people that suffer from addiction need their loved ones to help get them out of trouble. They may also need their loved ones to provide for them while they are being irresponsible and using drugs.

Close family members and friends of people with substance addictions also often struggle with codependency. This is because close family members and friends of people with substance addictions often start to develop their own identity in being the savior of their loved ones.

When close family members and friends of people with substance addictions start to develop a “savior complex”, they may start harming their own mental health by spending too much time and energy focusing on fixing the problems of their addicted loved ones.

Some family members and friends with co-dependent relationships with loved ones that suffer from addiction may even become enablers. So, it’s often best for case managers to provide loved ones of addicts with resources for treatment for codependency.
