Family Program & Services
“Addiction is a family disease” is a common phrase, well known in addiction treatment and recovery.
When an individual becomes addicted, every single person in an addict’s immediate family is affected by their substance abuse. The severity of addiction and substance of choice will contribute to the impact that addiction has on the family unit. “Addiction is a family disease” is a common phrase, and is well known in addiction treatment and recovery spaces.
There are a number of issues that arise from dealing with a loved one who struggles with the disease of addiction. An eye-opening and sad statistic in today’s generation is the number of children being raised by grandparents. This number has drastically increased over the past two decades, according to the U. S. Census. The two main causes of this are addiction and mental illness.
Other common issues that arise within a family unit brought forth from a substance use disorder can include but are not limited to:
- Domestic Violence
- Child Neglect or Abuse
- Financial Difficulties
- Legal Issues
- Personal Conflict
That is why we provide a comprehensive Family Program here at Banyan. The entire family must come together to heal as a unit, and there are many benefits of engaging in a family program for addiction. Do you have questions concerning support, enabling, boundaries, ultimatums, or other family-related matters? Our Family Services Specialists are here to help you. We will guide you through each step in the recovery process.
Our Family Program offers:
- Recovery Coaching
- The Johnson Model of Intervention
- Family Resources
- Weekly support calls
- Individual therapy sessions
- Education on signs and symptoms of relapse
- Enhanced family communication
