Dealing with trauma, substance abuse, and mental health issues can be difficult for individuals and family members alike. In fact, family members are often unsure about how to address the subject. Conversely, individuals stuck in a negative cycle and feel as though their families do not understand what they are experiencing. At The Willows at Red Oak Recovery®, our family therapy program breaks down communication barriers and re-establishes family relationships on the journey to recovery.

How Family Counseling Works

During our family therapy program, we invite family members to The Willows for individualized family sessions to help all family members gain a new perspective on addictive behaviors and family systems. Our program teaches women and their families how to identify negative behaviors and thought patterns. As part of our family therapy program, family members and relatives learn to eliminate toxic behaviors. Additionally, family members learn to provide more effective post-treatment support to their loved ones while continuing on their own journey of getting healthier.

Approaches to Family Counseling

Diverse therapy methods, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing, are common approaches used during our emotionally focused family therapy program. These counseling methods help families learn to identify their strengths and weaknesses, solve problems, and find a healthy way to express emotions.
