Family program Los Angeles, CA Intensive Outpatient Treatment

There’s a good reason addiction is known as a “family disease”–it affects everyone who is close to the person with the substance abuse problem. If you’re beginning therapy for substance abuse, it’s important to get the entire family involved in treatment. Our family program at AFS in the Los Angeles area wants your family members to understand your addiction just as much as you will.

Reasons To Attend The Family Program

  1. Your family will understand addiction better

For many people with an addicted loved one, the hardest part is watching their family member struggle without truly understanding the nature of addiction.  Family therapy at Adjustments Family Services will help your loved ones understand why addiction has had such a grip on your behavior, and it can help them learn to support you more effectively.

  1. Bringing your family together for therapy will provide you with more support

When you’re in recovery, you need as much support as you can get.  Family therapy brings your loved ones together and provides you with a wealth of emotional support.

  1. Family therapy can help you heal damaged relationships

Addiction is a disease that can cause you to hurt the most important people in your life.  You might steal money or valuables from your loved ones, or you might lie to them or lash out in anger.  It can be hard to repair these relationships, but family therapy can help.  In therapy, you can open the lines of communication with your loved ones and help them restore their trust in you.

  1. Your loved ones need to recover, too

Family members of an addicted person may experience a variety of emotional consequences, such as codependency, control issues, and poor self-esteem.  These issues develop when family members try to protect their addicted loved one from the consequences of their actions– trying to hide their loved one’s substance abuse from the world, taking over responsibilities that their family member abandoned or even blaming themselves for their loved one’s addiction.  Therapy can help an addicted person’s family members move forward and establish healthy boundaries.

  1. Family therapy helps your children

If you’re dealing with a substance abuse problem and you have children, your kids may grow up to become caught in the cycle of addiction.  They may have experienced emotional trauma from growing up in a home with substance abuse, and they might turn to drugs or alcohol as a way to deal with the pain.  Rehabilitation centers offer family therapy programs that cater to the needs of children, teaching them positive coping skills and helping them heal the wounds caused by addiction.

Family Program At Adjustments Family Services

It’s clear that involving your family can be the best therapy for substance abuse.  The road to recovery from drugs and alcohol isn’t easy, but the support of your family can help you through the tough times.  Addiction can tear families apart, but the right therapy at a drug abuse treatment center can restore your relationships and bring you and your loved ones closer together.At Adjustments Family Services, we are eager to work alongside you and your family to heal discord and help bring wholeness back to your lives.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

  • Where do I even begin. I first want to thank everyone at AFS they truly go above and beyond for their clients. I’ve gone to several detox and outpatient programs and this is the first one i felt loved and appreciated. The program has helped me in so many ways. Gave me tools to live life on life’s terms. I wouldn’t be where i am today without this program.

  • Adjustments Family Services changed my life!! Great food, great staff, wonderful place! Awesome to get to know the amazing clients and see that i was not alone in my recovery. I made friends for life in the short time i got to spend there. Not a better facility anywhere in my opinion!!The team of employees, from the Technicians all the way up to the Owner, all have a patient first mentality.

  • Going to treatment at Adjustments was one of the best programs I've participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and over all good-natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling , case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate to other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced everyday. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
