We take ample time to educate the family members of our clients about pertinent recovery-related topics, like enabling and the negative effects of doing so, codependency and a wide range of other potential familial issues and unhealthy behavioral patterns. In many instances, dysfunctional family patterns actually contribute to substance abuse in the first place – and if they are not thoroughly and adequately resolved, they are liable to lead to relapse at some point down the road.
By Phone or In-Person
How do we conduct our family therapy sessions? There are two main ways depending on how close the family members are to our inpatient detox facility. We can either conduct the therapy sessions in-person or over the phone. We understand that it can sometimes be difficult to get the loved ones of the client in one place at the same time – people have conflicting schedules, or are simply unable to travel to and from our facility with ease. At CuraWest we gladly adapt to all of your personal needs.
Outside of family therapy sessions, our licensed and knowledgeable case managers stay in constant communication with the family members of each individual client, keeping them updated on progress and on developing treatment plans and recovery goals. Upon admission to our private, home-style family, each individual client will be assigned a case manager who will stay by their side during every step of the early recovery process. Case managers help clients identify personal treatment goals and help clients develop a strategy for a long-term continuation of clinical care. They also communicate with the client’s loved ones, keeping them informed every step of the way. We understand that it is very important for the loved ones of the client to stay in the loop, and regular phone calls will be made. If family members have any additional questions or concerns, they are able to contact the case manager at any point in time.
