Family Therapy and Addiction Recovery Education
Drug abuse and alcohol addiction affect the family on many levels. Addictive behaviors can run through generations and, left untreated, leave family members at risk for years. Family can also bring about environmental factors in the development of these behavioral health conditions, without even knowing. Unhealthy communication and coping mechanisms can be one of the reasons why addiction starts, remains and decays the family dynamic. Bridging the gap, opening communication levels and fixing family strain are the main components of family therapy.
