At Muse Treatment we believe that alcohol and drug addiction effects the entire family. Support from friends and family is a crucial part of addiction treatment and is quintessential to the journey of recovery. Family weekend helps friends and families to reunite in a safe and supportive environment, understand the recovery process, and begin to heal the family dynamic.
While the individual suffering from substance abuse or a mental illness is in a treatment facility receiving therapy, friends and family members do not often seek therapy for themselves. The damage and destruction caused by substance abuse and mental illness is deep seeded and needs to be addressed for those who lived through the disease. Family therapy helps all members of the family to learn new communication skills, set healthy boundaries, and learn how not to enable the member of the family with the mental illness or addiction.
Family weekend allows for family members and friends to stay engaged in recovery related activities with their loved one, increasing success in recovery. Family Weekend at Muse Treatment is a wonderful way to encourage families to work on healing together, and living in recovery together, in new and healthy ways.
