Family Counseling and Groups
Evidence shows that when families are involved in their loved one's treatment and their own recovery, the success rate of their loved one more than doubles. Opportunities like family counseling allow the clients and family to begin the healing process.
The following are the services provided to the families of clients participating in the Solutions Intensive Outpatient treatment program.
GROUP COUNSELING FOR FAMILIES
Solutions Intensive Outpatient Program includes group counseling for families two nights a week. This setting helps the families identify and relate to other families, receive support and feedback, and address their questions and concerns. Evidence shows that when families are involved in their loved one’s treatment and their own recovery, the success rate of their loved one more than doubles.
While in treatment, Solutions will provide as-needed individual family/couple sessions with their primary counselor. This provides a client/family a private setting to discuss and address any concerns they might not feel comfortable bringing up in the Family Group. Family members are encouraged to bring most concerns and issues to the Family Group on Tuesday and Thursday nights.
MULTI-FAMILY GROUP COUNSELING
On Thursday nights, Solutions provides a multi-family group for clients and their family/significant other. This is a group with all the clients and families together facilitated by their primary counselors. It is a powerful setting for clients and families to hear and learn from other clients and family members. This group helps reduces the isolation and loneliness felt by them.
Once a client has been in Solutions for 30 days and also has 30 days of sobriety, they and their family have the opportunity to participate in an intensive Family Workshop. This is an opportunity for clients and their families to communicate without shame and blame and begin the healing process.
