We understand that family dynamics are quite complicated. Every family is unique, whether you have a nuclear, blended, or other “family” configuration, all families share a bond that can be used to support one another during difficult times. River Ridge Recovery works with families to navigate the unique challenges they face each day.
While there is no single solution for helping a family member who is using substances or dealing with a mental illness, research shows that recovery is greatly enhanced when family members and other concerned persons become involved in the treatment process. Family therapy can help families understand the way their relationships work together and how the dynamics of these relationships impact the entire family’s response to every event, from simple daily tasks to major life events.
Family members may be more likely to notice when their loved ones are experiencing changes in mood or behavior. Being able to offer support, family members can connect those in need with treatment, resources, and services to begin and stay on their recovery journey.
River Ridge Recovery is committed to a family systems approach to care and families are invited to participate in various options of services. It is an essential component of all our treatment programs.
- Individual family conferences are scheduled based on the identified needs of each client.
- Family groups are offered weekly for clients involved in all our treatment programs, topics are relevant to family systems and dynamics.
- Ongoing couples and/or family therapy is available with our Mental Health team.
Clients do not need to be involved in our other programming to take advantage of family therapy!
