Overcome Addiction as a Family
Overcome Addiction as a Family
A struggle with addiction not only affects the individual, but it also affects the individual’s family. An addicted family member’s behavior and actions can send a rippling effect through the infrastructure of a family. Though the addicted member may not realize it, an addiction to one family member can negatively affect many other family members and close friends. When an addiction has gotten to the point where action needs to be taken, it can often be difficult to convince someone to attend a rehabilitation center—and sometimes even when a family member is convinced to go, the rehab stint doesn’t result in a lasting recovery. In today’s world of addiction treatment, it’s extremely important to find specific therapies and treatments that work well with an individual patient. At Seabrook we take a unique, individualistic, and holistic approach towards addiction recovery because we have found that this kind of exclusive treatment results in a lasting recovery. Seabrook offers many different wellness and complimentary therapies as well as many detoxification, rehabilitation, and intervention programs. One of the unique programs that Seabrook offers is Family Treatment.
The Family Department at Seabrook offers a wide range of services to families who are struggling with addiction. Our staff of professionals has extensive experience in working with families. While our approach is couched in family systems theory, we connect with families through compassion and understanding. The Family Matrix Program is a three day family experience that allows families to begin to heal and strengthen the family bonds strained by addiction. The Family Matrix Program commences the exploration of family dynamics in a group setting that creates a sense of safety and acceptance that is vital to the family healing. Topics such as enabling and boundaries are explored in depth as well as the latest medical information regarding addiction. Once families have a clear understanding of their relationship with the addicted person they are then able to see where they are powerless and, more important, where they do have power. In other words, family members are able to reclaim the family from the hijacking of addiction and restore a sense of hope as the miracle of recovery is revealed.
Seabrook understands that certain treatments work better for some than they do for others—but maybe family treatment is what will work for your addicted family member. Seabrook is an internationally recognized private and exclusive inpatient drug rehab and alcoholism detoxification treatment center who has achieved an elite CARF accreditation status, ensuring that our rehab patients receive the highest quality treatment.
