Family Therapy

Family Involvement in Substance Abuse Treatment

When it comes to drug and alcohol addictions, these substance use disorders can have a drastic, negative impact on the lives of family members and loved ones of those who suffer. People often think that addiction only affected the addicted individual, but that’s not the case.

Substance abuse has shown to have a very negative influence on an addict’s entire family. As a result of this, family therapy is a commonly sought out counseling program at Garden State Treatment Center. Family therapy is often used in substance abuse programs in New Jersey and across the country.

At our outpatient and partial care treatment center in New Jersey, our family therapy program gives each participant the opportunity to express how their loved one’s substance abuse has affected their lives.

Family therapy takes place in a safe setting and is carefully conducted in a practical fashion by a licensed therapist. It’s important that the family effectively convey their thoughts and feelings without making the addicted loved one feel “attacked” which can have a negative impact in the therapy session.
