Family therapy is designed to help addicts get clean and sober by using what they love the most; their family. Most drug treatment centers make it mandatory that the addict’s family attend therapy sessions, which is great because having everyone there to support them makes it much easier for them to get clean. Not only are they surrounded by people who want them to get better, but everyone is there because they want the best for them, not because they feel like they have to be.
Drug addicts are often surrounded by resentful or uneducated family members who would, at times, rather see them stay addicted because it makes their own lives easier. Sometimes they don’t understand what the addiction is or how they play a part in it. They know that during and after the addict’s sobriety journey, they will face challenges and changes that they aren’t sure how to handle. This can be very tough for an addict to go through on their own, which is why it’s so important that they have the support of their family. Just because someone is an addict does not mean that they don’t deserve the love and support of those around them.
