A single family member who is suffering from the disease of addiction affects the family.
Do you have a family member or friend who is exhibiting behaviours that cause problems in relationships; is a no-show at important social, recreational or work-related events; uses drugs or alcohol again and again even when it puts him or her in danger then your friend or loved one might have a problem. In the most severe cases, it is called an addiction. It can happen to people from all walks of life, young or old. We are here to help.
The client is affected by the disease of addiction and so is the set of relationships of all who are close to the afflicted person. Family can be individuals that represent the client’s support system which may include spouses, parents, siblings, children, friends, employers or other trusted individual.
We understand how divisive, isolating and destructive the disease of addiction can be when it takes hold of the family. We have seen first-hand how it leaves family members angry, exhausted and totally demoralised. It is for these and other reasons that our Family Programme forms a critical component to the range of treatment options available to clients and their families.
Our Family Programme is led by internationally- trained, masters-level family therapists. The programme includes the following:-
- Individual and group counselling session
- Family therapy sessions
- Intensive two-day workshops around the family disease of addiction
- Educating family members about the disease of addiction and its impact on the family – the primary goal being to enhance communication skills so that clients have the support they need to sustain long term recovery
- Visitation opportunities and regular updates for family members
We believe that providing support for the family significantly increases the chances that the family can be restored to wellness. For more information regarding our Family Programme please contact us at:-
