What Is Family Therapy?
In a family, each member contributes, and each member receives. But family life is rarely perfectly balanced. The family is a system, and the actions of each member—like substance abuse, for example—affect others in the family. And when a family is off-kilter, family therapy can help immensely for loved ones to find equilibrium.
Family therapy is not a substitute for other therapies and approaches to addiction treatment. Instead, it complements these other approaches. Combined with group therapy, one-on-one cognitive-behavioral therapy, and interventions for mental health concerns, family therapy can help our patients as they heal in every aspect of their lives.
Counseling aims to promote collaboration among family members to solve the problems of one or more individuals. It can also help family members understand one another better and learn coping skills to bring them closer together.
What to Expect in Family Therapy
While what happens in a family therapy session will depend on your family’s unique situation, there are a few things you can come to expect.
Sessions will typically last for about an hour, and you’ll meet regularly for as long as several months. Your therapist will likely ask some questions and bring up certain topics. These might include:
- Mental health issues like depression and anxiety
- How substance abuse has impacted family members
- Ways to handle conflict between family members
You’ll learn about how your family solves problems and the patterns that contribute to conflict. Your therapist will help you talk openly about challenging issues and discover ways to care for each other best.
Family therapy can be an incredibly helpful part of your journey to recovery—learn more about it today.
