Family Therapy for Addiction at Casa Serena
At Casa Serena, we rebuild trusting relationships and show you how to create healthy boundaries. Recognizing that families are essential partners in building strategies for a healthy family system, we have designed a special Family Program to provide education, treatment, and support to the families, children and loved ones afflicted by the devastating effects of substance abuse and mental health disorders,
We teach families how to support their loved ones’ recovery process, while providing them the tools they need for their own recovery.
Addiction is often called a “family disease.” This is because it affects not only the addict but their loved ones as well. When someone is addicted to drugs or alcohol, their world begins to center around drug-seeking behaviors. This often leads to the destruction of relationships and emotional turmoil for those they love the most.
As a family member, you’ve asked yourself these questions over and over again, without concrete answers.

Our Individual Family Sessions
These sessions are offered to current clients and families in our program to engage participants with interventions that directly address the multidimensional causes of an unhealthy family system.
Involving family members in addiction therapy is an essential part of the treatment and recovery process. While your loved one is working on healing and overcoming the challenges of addiction, family therapy provides an opportunity for the family to heal from the damage caused by their loved one’s addiction. It also helps the family learn how to support their loved one without involving or using enabling behaviors.
Family therapy sessions utilize various therapeutic approaches that focus on the family’s strengths as individuals and as a family unit. Together, they can better help their loved ones maintain their sobriety and avoid relapse and relapse triggers. It is essential to remember that many addicts return home to their families after completing treatment. Therefore, it is vital for members of the family to understand addiction and the best ways to help their loved one through support, healthy communication, and fostering or repairing trust.
