Addiction is a family disease. The user is not the only one who suffocates from addiction’s grip. When a patient receives treatment, his or her family needs time and education to heal as well, which is why we designed our specific counseling program as help for families of addicts in California.
During our family addiction counseling in Lancaster, California, families receive in-depth education regarding addiction and how this disease affects people. We have two processes for our family program:
The first process is when our family care counselors work as a liaison between a client and his or her family. This is done over Skype or the telephone.
The reason we do this first step is to gain a better understanding of the client’s unique family dynamics. It’s always helpful to have an outside point of view and perspective. It enables the counselor to get a better, well-rounded feel of how the client-family relations before they join us at our center for our Family Program.
We invite client’s families to join us at our facility for a weekend during the client's stay with us. Family members engage in:
Families come together to talk and communicate. At the end of the Family Program weekend, resolutions are often achieved. We teach effective tools for communication to restore the communication breakdown caused by addiction. We guide families through the process of recovery and help them find peace and balance within their relationships. Building trust takes time, and won’t happen overnight, but with willingness, patience, persistence and healing can begin.
