Family Counseling + Therapy
Family therapy is a crucial part of drug treatment and getting sober. It is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety.

It can be incredibly difficult for loved ones to watch an addict go through the pain and suffering of withdrawal, but by being there with them and supporting them, they can help to make sure that the addiction never returns.
One of the most important parts of family therapy is the relapse prevention plan. During treatment, therapists and doctors will often sit down with the addict and their family to develop a plan in case the addict ever feels like they want to use again. This plan should involve steps the addict and family can take together to prevent them from relapsing in the future. An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse because they can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track before it becomes too much of a problem.
