In family therapy, family members will participate in treatment along with their loved one suffering from addiction. A family therapy program will be designed based on the individual needs of the individual and each family. For example, the requirements of a married couple in a family therapy program may differ from that of a single parent and their children or that of a blended family. This flexibility in a family therapy program is intended to accommodate many different individuals, group dynamics, and circumstances.
The goal of all family therapy programs, however, is the same: to educate the family about addiction. Understanding the process of recovery enables the family to support the recovering individual as best as possible after rehab. This understanding can improve family members’ accountability for their behavior. The sessions designed for the family members only (without the recovering individual) can give them the specific support they need, like showing them how to help their loved one after treatment.
Your own course of treatment along with comprehensive family treatment can significantly reduce the spread of this disease to your loved ones. While adult family members can derive a significant benefit, if you have children, you can help lower or eliminate their risk of lifelong problems before they start as well.

Bayview Family Workshop
Bayview Recovery’s family therapy program is an interactive workshop. It helps family members reconnect, facilitates healing, and improves their relationships. The workshop gives a loved one’s family members an opportunity to contribute actively to their recovery. It can also help reframe internal family dynamics so that they may sustain the recovery process. The goal is to strengthen the family as a whole and decrease the risk of relapse.
While family members may feel apprehensive about participating in the treatment of their loved one, the benefits of participation can be significant. Bayview Recovery’s family therapy workshop is facilitated by professional counselors, grounded in the latest research and findings in neurobiology and psychology, to ensure you get these benefits. You will have Bayview Recovery’s full support during this phase of treatment.
