Family Therapy for Addiction in Florida
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. They can also sometimes be the most challenging. However, most in addiction recovery have come to realize 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 typically 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 to 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. Also, these views are often formed at a young age, due to a dysfunctional relationship within the family. During their one-on-one therapy, clients will learn how to breakdown these false opinions, so they can begin to heal and move forward.
The convolution of family demands bringing together many different needs in one household. Thus, finding the best technique to deal 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 likely roots of a problem, from family communication styles to what views create the foundation of the family structure.

Florida Family Therapy Explores New "Paths"
Family therapy for addiction in Florida involves all members of the unit making the family accountable for the solution. This is paramount, even if the problem appears to be only one member (addicted 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 to resolve family issues.
Florida family therapy also 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 where some pitfalls. In this way, families and clients learn what motivates their behavior and how certain behavior affects the entire family. When one member is struggling with a problem, they may be surprised to find out how their individual struggle has actually inflicted the entire family. When they grasp this understanding, the family can help them 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 in it. Changes in strategy can be discussed and the therapist is there to make sure that 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 with group therapy meetings, receive individualized therapy sessions, and become involved with the alumni program.

Family members can share their feelings about the addiction and any associated behavioral health issues. By doing this, old examples of behavior are known, and new trust is gained. Family therapy is similar to group therapy. Sessions are run by a licensed, professional therapist, and any family members are invited to join and actively participate. Once things are brought out into the open in a sensitive and meaningful way, understanding and healing can now rise to the forefront.
