Family therapy indicates that individuals of a family seek counseling together as a group. This type of therapy focuses on family dynamics and interactions. It explores conflicts, communication, and patterns within a family system. When a family member is facing addiction, feelings of worry and anger can arise. Being able to express emotions in a safe environment can bring awareness to what everyone in the family is feeling, including the addicted loved one. Speaking with a licensed therapist can improve education about addiction, which creates family support, which is paramount in recovery.

This workshop allows family members to contribute actively to their loved ones’ recovery. If you and your loved ones could benefit from family counseling through our interactive workshop call Washington-based Bayview Recovery now at 855.478.3650.
What Are the Benefits of Family Counseling?
Families play a key role in the recovery process. For example, family members can learn whether or not they have been enabling or helping the addicted loved one. Other benefits of family counseling are:
- Improving communication skills
- Identifying problems within the family
- Teaching relapse prevention and conflict resolution
- Offering education and understanding
- Providing healthy coping strategies
- Strengthening relationships
- Exploring how family members interact with each other to gain insight where certain areas need growth
Addiction is often referred to as a “family disease.” Exploring the complex connections of a family system and its history can unveil the root causes of addiction. Healing can take place when family members can identify the impact addiction has on their family. Additionally, family therapy can have a lasting effect on each participant by being active in the healing process. When healing takes place throughout the family system, it can create a powerful support system from which all members can benefit.
There are countless benefits of family counseling. Healing and recovery are possible for you and your family! Reach out to Bayview Recovery online or at 855.478.3650 to discover the amazing ways your family can heal from addiction.
Understanding Family Dynamics
Family dynamics are the interactions or patterns between family members. Therapists address the entire family and work collaboratively with all members. Family members who are dealing with a loved one in recovery must learn new strategies to cope. Practicing these new strategies together can facilitate healing within the entire family system.
Bayview Recovery’s interactive workshop allows family members to practice the skills they learn in a safe environment guided by licensed therapists. We believe that family members can gain wisdom through constructive commentary on interactions within the family. Listed below are some influences of family dynamics:
- Having a strict or lenient parent
- Number of children in the family
- An absent parent
- Events that affected family members like addiction or trauma
- Family Values
- Ethnicity or culture
- Personalities of family members
