We know how much your family means to you, and we want them to be a part of your journey to addiction recovery, too.

At The Canyon Santa Monica, we have a family support group program that includes family members in the recovery process. Educating your family on addiction is key, as is educating you on the impact alcohol or drug addiction may have on them. 

Your Family is Impacted by Your Alcohol or Drug Abuse

Struggling with addiction or substance use disorders is tough, but your family is going through a lot too.

Families affected by alcoholism or drug abuse and addiction can feel disconnected, broken and lost. The reasons behind substance use can be confusing, and the recovery process can be hard to understand. Including them in your recovery can shine a light on your potential, while also allowing them time to process the way they feel.

Additionally, your actions could have impacted them in many ways that cause them to have strong feelings towards you that need to be worked through with professionals.

Who you are when addicted is not who you are. We can help get your life back on track, and our family support group will help get them involved in the process.

How Can Group Therapies Help a Family?

Group therapies can be extremely beneficial in the journey to recovery, as a support group at an IOP treatment center can let families know that they are not alone and that others have gone through what they are going through.

Family support groups take this and amplify it to help better understand you, as well as providing them (and you) with the education, skills and tools necessary to prepare everyone for your life in recovery. Your family should be a part of your recovery journey, because they will be a part of your life journey.

A Family Support Group Program Provides a Safe, Supportive Place

Group therapies offer a safe, supportive place for everyone to share their experiences and learn from each other. They provide family members with the opportunity to ask questions and receive support from peer counselors and therapists who specialize in understanding the role of addiction in families. In addition, they can help family members adjust to the changes that will result from recovery, such as greater communication and improved relationships.

Family members can learn to recognize the signs of relapse and develop strategies for dealing with them in a positive, effective way. They also gain an understanding of how addiction affects each family member and what they can do to reduce its negative effects on everyone involved.  Family group sessions help everyone learn through shared experiences, setting goals for a successful recovery and providing support to one another. 

Group therapies provide an invaluable resource for families suffering from addiction, offering them the opportunity to work through their issues together in order to find healing and hope. These group sessions can help families learn how to cope better with their situation and be more supportive of each other during the recovery process.  It can also help to affirm that recovery is possible and strengthen family bonds in the long run.

Why Choose a Family Support Group Program?

Addiction is called a “family disease” for good reason. Finding a healthy way to support your family begins with getting help and support for yourself.

With our family support group, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other families with loved ones in treatment; learn about addiction, treatment, and recovery; and how you can best support your loved one through their recovery.
