At Opus Treatment, we believe that your family can be your most important support system as you go through drug rehab in our addiction treatment center. Your family unit plays a major role in your relationships with others as well as your own identity. When one member of your family unit is struggling with addiction or diseases of any kind, the whole family dynamic is affected and changes. When your bonds with your own family are broken, as they can be when addiction enters, you may not have the ability to provide each other unconditional support needed for healing. This is where we step in and help you reconnect with loved ones through our family therapy and support groups.
Family support allows for many facets of dysfunction to be addressed in a positive, healing environment. You will be lead through communication and conflict resolution activities and confront issues directly related to your drug or alcohol addiction. While this process is not pain-free, the results can be astounding. Having open communication with your loved ones lead by a therapist experienced in addiction is one of the most important aspects of emotional recovery. The ability to discuss and share in a non-threatening way breaks down walls.
In family therapy, the client may choose who they wish to have included in their therapy sessions. While our therapist may suggest that you address certain family issues, we will not make this decision for you. We will ask you important questions about your personal relationships. Some of these questions include details about the most important and influential people in your life. Other questions seek to uncover the relationships that have in some cases enabled drug abuse and those who sought to get you much-needed addiction intervention. While many of the positive relationships in your life may be immediate family, others likely will be friends and even co-workers. Learning to differentiate between healthy bonds and unhealthy influences is vital to your recovery journey.
During the course of your family therapy while at Opus Treatment in Costa Mesa, CA, your preconceptions of the family may change and evolve. When choosing whom to lean on following residential rehab many will focus their energy on relationships that encourage forward momentum and further healing. Sometimes this will not include family members, and in others, it may include only certain relationships.
We always recommend that our families attend 12-step programs such as Al-Anon, Nar-Anon, and Co-Dependents Anonymous. These meetings for individuals with family members struggling with alcoholism, narcotic addiction or co-dependency issues allow for the sharing of information about addiction as well as acceptance that recovery is ultimately out of their hands. The overwhelming feelings of regret or failure can be a roadblock for dealing with loved ones effectively, as well as personal healing. Should you have questions about these support groups and others, reach out to Opus Treatment today.
One of the more commonly asked questions we answer from both clients and families is about rehab costs. In order to find out what you will be responsible for we provide insurance verification, information about financing options, and other creative ways to support your loved one. Many Costa Mesa families have used crowdfunding platforms and social media pages to help get the financial help needed to pay for treatment programs. Allow us to walk you through all the options available to you and call us today.
