About Family Therapy for Addictions
Most of work I do with families (often parents) involves dealing with a loved one who has an addiction or some type of co-occurring behavioral or emotional problem. Addiction impacts the entire family system in profound, destructive ways and it’s important to seek support and guidance to deal with the fallout and respond in healthy, practical ways. Often, families inadvertently contribute to the “enabling” process and need coaching and education to learn new ways of dealing with the problem. This process often feels counterintuitive and as if going against all natural instincts, however is critical to combating the addictive process. You may need help or coaching towards getting to a place where the addict’s crisis does not have to become your crisis, with the negative pattern repeating over and over again. Or perhaps you need a safe place to talk about your struggle with empathy and support. With many years working at Caron, renowned for its strong family focus and emphasis on fostering recovery in the entire family system, I am expertly trained in working with families in this capacity. Sessions may be done in person or often over the phone as frequently family members need guidance in the moment and without warning.
