Assisting Families to Overcome Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Findlay Recovery Center is committed to supporting families affected by addiction to help them find healing and resolution. Although addiction is a deeply personal struggle, it can have a profound impact on the entire family and those closest to the individual. As such, family therapy is a critical component of addiction treatment as it allows family members to understand how addiction affects them and provides the necessary tools to restore and enhance their relationships.

Family therapy is essential because family members are interconnected, and alterations in one person’s behavior can lead to changes in the others. It offers a platform for members to identify and prevent risk factors that could lead to addiction. Addiction can also change family dynamics, causing members to feel neglected, angry, guilty, and ashamed. While the individual with addiction seeks treatment, other family members often feel helpless. Family therapy provides them with a safe space to express their emotions about addiction, gain insight into their behavior, and facilitate positive change.

Exploring the Link Between Family and Addiction: The Role of Family Therapy in Addiction Recovery

Family therapy can be a powerful tool in addiction recovery. By working with therapists who specialize in the dynamics of family relationships, clients can build stronger connections with their loved ones and move towards a healthier future.

Prior to beginning therapy, it’s important for the client to decide which family members should participate. Typically, those who are responsible for maintaining the household, providing support, and financial assistance, or with whom the client has a deep emotional connection are included. It’s also possible to involve friends, significant others, or coworkers as part of the family unit.

Unfortunately, it’s common for families to blame the individual struggling with addiction for all of the family’s problems. However, the goal of family therapy is to avoid assigning blame and instead work towards a shared recovery for the entire family. Working together, families can come together, heal, and move forward as a unit.

Our 5-Star Reviews

I would recommend this recovery center to my family and to all my loved ones. All the staff here is excellent. You could tell that the staff truly cared about each client that walked through the door here. They took the time to listen to you and to understand you. They were always there to help you in whatever way they could. Listening to the staff tell their stories of their own recovery helped me with my recovery. I can’t say enough positive things about this center. Please don’t hesitate to call them.



This place is amazing! The facility is immaculate, and the rooms are huge like a large hotel room with a TV and showers in each room. The staff is so wonderful, understanding, and very compassionate. They are always there to help you in any way they can. If you are looking for a detox/residential facility, look no further! Give them a call and start your path to recovery out RIGHT by attending the program at Findlay Recovery Center today!



Great facility I highly recommend.  Great staff all around who really care for you.  Excellent food and small groups that are all supportive of each other's recovery.  Loved my time here!



My experience at Findlay was absolutely AMAZING! All of the staff, nurses, Doctors, and patients were amazing. I will always keep Findlay close to my heart and I'm internally grateful for everything they have done for me. Not to mention the food is BOMB for every meal. I 100% recommend this facility to anyone seeking help!



My stay at FRC was more than i could imagine. my detox process was very well maintained by the staff. the staff was more than helpful, the other clients were very helpful and gave a lot of support as well as the staff gave tremendous support.



I've been to 3 treatment centers, and I was scared going to my third one here at Findlay but I was finally ready to get clean and stay clean. Findlay made me comfortable, especially during detox, and gave me the push I wasn't going to give myself. The groups made a huge impact on my recovery and the information I have learned will stick with me forever. At Findlay, every single other person here starting their journey with me I  connected with and never felt alone.



Helping Families and Individuals Cope with Addiction: Effective Coping Techniques

It can be difficult for loved ones to cope in a healthy way when a family member is struggling with substance abuse. To avoid unhealthy behaviors, it is crucial to recognize and understand the following coping mechanisms:

  • Enabling: Unintentionally supporting the loved one’s drug problem by shielding them from the consequences of their actions. For example, purchasing drugs or alcohol for the family member, paying their bills to avoid financial trouble, or ignoring violent or manipulative tendencies and drug habits.
  • Denial: Refusing to acknowledge the severity of the drug addiction, suppressing feelings, and trying not to upset the loved one.
  • Codependency: Dysfunction within the family causes some members to become obsessed with their loved one’s feelings, ignoring their own. This might lead to low self-esteem, misplaced anger, and outbursts against other household members. These individuals may also use unhealthy behaviors like overeating to cope with the stress.

Recognizing these behaviors and seeking professional help to address the root cause of the addiction is critical.

Understanding the Objectives of Family Drug Therapy in Findlay Recovery Center’s Family Program

Family therapists have several goals in mind when working with families affected by drug addiction. These goals include the following:

  • Overcoming obstacles that may impede recovery is a crucial aspect of family therapy. Families often resort to denial, enabling behaviors, or co-dependency to deal with their loved one’s addiction. As a result, it is critical to teach them ways to recognize and break these patterns. For example, some families may provide drugs to their drug-addicted loved ones to avoid violent or destructive behavior.
  • Another objective of family therapy is to restore normal, healthy family roles. Addiction causes chaos and disorganization as it uproots families and reverses roles. Children may end up caring for their parents and setting limits or boundaries may become difficult. In therapy, families can focus on reestablishing appropriate family roles, improving communication, and creating a secure family environment.
  • Many family drug treatment programs emphasize the importance of educating families affected by drug abuse to identify behaviors or thoughts that create ideal conditions for addiction at home. They are also taught about the effects of addiction, the recovery process, and the role they must play in supporting their loved one’s recovery.

If you’re seeking support during this challenging process, look no further than Findlay Recovery Center. Our compassionate representatives are available to assist you today.
