Family Therapy for Addiction in Florida
Addiction is a family disease, which is powered by secrecy and shame. Family therapy for addiction in Florida can help you discover the source of your drug or alcohol addictions. Connections developed with family members are often the most satisfying relationships we will ever know. At times, they can also be the most challenging. Most in addiction recovery have come to realize that the sources of their addictions are intertwined with their interpersonal relationships. Often, when an individual has been struggling in active addiction, ties to family and friends are shut-down. At Simple Path Recovery, we will work with the client and their family to heal old scars, let go of resentments, and create a better path for the future.
One-on-One Client Addiction Counseling
Simple Path Recovery therapists will work with each client to help identify any negative or untrue beliefs they hold about themselves. These destructive self-beliefs can be drivers of their chemical dependency, shape their family unit, and disrupt their daily life. These views are often formed at a young age, due to a dysfunctional relationship within the family. During one-on-one therapy, clients will learn how to break down these false opinions, so they can begin to heal and move forward.
The complexity of family means many different needs are often brought to one household. Thus, dealing with addiction problems within the family means accepting that problems in one part of the family may be indicative of a larger issue. Our therapists will look at all aspects of a problem, from family communication styles to the foundation of the family structure.

Once-a-Month Family Support Group Via Zoom
Simple Path Recovery recently launched telehealth knowhow for all of its family therapy services. Specifically, we are hosting a family support group that will meet once-a-month via Zoom. If you have family or loved ones who would like to participate in family meeting/group, you can contact us at 855-367-3625 for more detailed information. The support group is open to family or friends and loved ones of prior clients, as well as existing clients. Our family support group is another “path” for our extended Simple Path family to stay connected and get the assistance and guidance that has become difficult during Covid-19.
Tele-therapy or group video chat allows clients to maintain addiction counseling that bolsters their recovery in a group setting. Through technology, telehealth offers a strategic advantage for clients, doctors, therapists, and our alumni, who may no longer be in the South Florida area.
Florida Family Therapy Explores New "Paths"
Family therapy for addiction makes all members of the family unit accountable for the solution. This is paramount, even if the problem initially appears to stem from one sole member. By supporting everyone, family therapy strengthens each individual member as well. Furthermore, Florida family therapy will help families explore new ways to interact in order to create clear communication styles and resolve family issues.
Florida family therapy teaches teamwork and the concept that the family unit can and should work well for everyone. Moreover, it displays how vital clear communication is and discloses potential pitfalls. In this way, families and clients learn what motivates their behavior and how certain behaviors can affect the entire family. When one member is struggling with a problem, they may be surprised to find out how their individual struggle has actually affected the entire family. Subsequently, the family can help uncover better ways to support that person.
Family therapists employ an active participatory method for their therapy. Family members are typically given assignments to complete that will help them understand what is happening and the role they play. Changes in strategy can be discussed and the therapist will ensure all voices are heard.
Healing for All Family Members
During active addiction, family members are often lied to, manipulated, and used. While addiction can lead to brain chemical imbalances and behavioral changes, family members don’t always see these actions as excusable. And, they’re not. However, without forgiveness and understanding, healing cannot occur. That's why family involvement during treatment can play such an important role. At Simple Path Recovery, families are given the opportunity to join in group therapy meetings, receive individualized therapy sessions, and become involved in the alumni program.

Family members can share their feelings about the addiction in question as well as any associated behavioral health issues. By doing this, old examples of behavior are known, and new trust is gained. In many ways, family therapy is similar to group therapy. Sessions are run by a licensed, professional therapist, and all members are invited to join and actively participate. Once things are brought into the open in a sensitive and meaningful way, understanding and healing can rise to the forefront.
Here are some things that family therapists can assist with:
