Family Systems Therapy
Here at Villa Kali Ma, we understand the importance of the family’s role in the recovery process. Since substance abuse and other co-occurring disorders can greatly strain and possibly even destroy communication with family members, we want to give the family the opportunity to learn and grow along with their loved one seeking treatment. Our family systems therapy program happens once per week and are focused on healing and re-establishing mutual respect, love and support within the family system. We will work to let go of the anger and resentment that often arises and strains relationships. We will teach families better ways of communication and give them new ways of coping with the difficult times ahead as the recovery process begins to change the way the family members relate to each other.
In addition to the weekly family systems therapy sessions, we offer an intensive family systems therapy session once per month to any families that would like to participate. This program will take place in a group setting with other families participating as well. The family systems therapy program will begin on a Friday evening from 5:30 pm-8:30 pm and continue all day Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am-4:30 pm. This will be an experiential group process that will include education on addiction, trauma, and other co-occurring issues and how they affect families. Participants will learn tools that they can use to better cope within the family and through the recovery process. Multiple ideas and scenarios will be presented and families will get to learn hands on what to do and what not to do in these hypothetical (but possible) situations that they may face within the family system during the recovery process. We highly encourage our clients and their family members to participate in this very valuable learning experience.
