Family Therapy

Addiction Affects the Entire Family

When addiction takes over, it can wreak havoc on every aspect of a person’s life – including their relationships with family and friends. Family therapy for addiction is a type of counseling that can help repair these damaged relationships.

Family therapy for addiction can address a variety of issues, including communication problems, conflict resolution, and rebuilding trust. It can also help family members understand addiction and how it affects their loved one. Ultimately, family therapy for addiction can help create a supportive environment for recovery.

There are many benefits of family therapy for addiction. For instance, it can improve communication within the family, help resolve conflict, and promote healing and forgiveness. In addition, family therapy can provide support and understanding during a difficult time.

If you are considering family therapy for addiction, it is important to find a therapist who is experienced in working with families affected by addiction. 

Veritas Detox is proud to have a team of qualified therapists who can help you and your loved ones heal your relationships and create a supportive environment for recovery. Contact us today to learn more about our family therapy program.

A Family-Centered Approach to Addiction Recovery

In a comprehensive program for treating addiction, all aspects of the person’s life are considered, including their family relationships. Family members of substance users often feel helpless and resentful, and they may try to control or direct the addict’s behavior. 

This only drives the individual away or causes them to become defensive and resentful. Family members can take control of their own feelings and behavior. 

They can also learn how to support the person struggling with addiction while protecting themselves and other family members from the consequences of the addict’s self-destructive behavior. 

Family members play a critical role in the recovery process. They are often the first to recognize addiction, the first to experience its impact, and the first to seek help and hope. When family members feel unsupported and misunderstood, they are less likely to seek help and more likely to experience negative consequences of their own.

Why Is Family Therapy for Addiction Important for Recovery?

Family members often feel isolated and confused by the experience of living with an addicted loved one. Frequently, families are confronted with a lack of information about their situation and many myths about substance use disorders and the best ways to respond. 

What’s more, family members may feel that they are taking on roles and responsibilities that aren’t rightfully theirs. They are frequently expected to provide the answers when neither they nor their loved one knows how to proceed. 

Family members may also feel that they are to blame for the substance use disorder, thinking that they could have or should have done something to prevent it. Not only that but they may be blamed by others, as well. 

If you are a family member of a loved one who is addicted to drugs or alcohol, you might feel shame and embarrassment, and you may even fear losing your relationship. If you’re worried that others will judge you or assume that you are at fault, you are not alone.

It’s normal to feel these things and more. What matters is that you take the first steps toward a resolution. At Veritas Detox, we understand the need for family therapy and specialize in finding solutions that help you during this challenging time.

The Benefits of Family Therapy for Addiction?

Family members may feel overwhelmed and uncertain about how to proceed. They may not know how to help the individual stop using, how to protect themselves and other family members from the consequences of the addicted person’s actions, and how to create a safe and supportive environment where the addicted person can begin to heal.

At Veritas Detox, our family therapy for addiction can help families understand substance use disorders and the impact of addiction on family members. Moreover, we can provide tools and resources to help families navigate their situations and create a more positive outcome. 

As a result, you will experience the benefits of family therapy for addiction, providing freedom from what feels like a hopeless trap with no way out. We will help you understand and process your own emotions and constructively channel the energy and emotions associated with the situation.

This is another way in which family therapy for addiction is different from other forms of rehab. Family therapy for addiction is much more focused on helping people to build new, healthy habits. 

One of the biggest challenges that people face after getting clean is how to avoid falling back into old behaviors. Family therapy for addiction encourages patients to build new and healthier habits that help to replace the destructive ones. This may include everything from meditation to better food choices.

Our therapy for family members of addicts can help you create a safe and supportive environment for your loved one in recovery.

One of the key advantages of family therapy is that it forces everyone to open up and talk about what’s going on. For example, it is common for people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol to be in denial about their own problems. 

They may be able to recognize the problem in others but be unable to see it in themselves. The problem with denial is that it prevents people from seeking the help they need to overcome the problem. 

It is easy to fall into a trap like this when addiction is involved because the behavior feels so out of control. It is also common for family members to be angry, resentful, and even ashamed about the addiction. 

Family therapy for addiction helps to level the playing field. It forces everyone to address the problem head-on, without shame or judgment. It offers a chance for everyone to be heard, express their concerns, and explore potential solutions.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Veritas came highly recommended and lived up to any expectations I might have had. I traveled halfway across the country to a place completely foreign to me in California and felt comfortable almost immediately which provided for a solid foundation in my Recovery...

Jo H. 11/19/2020

Veritas has not only given me the tools to stay sober but has also showed me how to live a happy and fulfilled life. I have been to several other places in an effort to get sober but none of them can even get close to what this place has truly done for me...

John A.

A little over a month ago I was home struggling with a bad drug problem. I had gotten a hold of a recruiter & they suggested “Veritas” in Los Angeles CA. This place is absolutely amazing & very helpful. The staff are great as well as their personal Chef. The meals are great & everything else is. It’s a very comfortable place...

Zach F.

Veritas has been life saving and life changing for my son, which has made a profound impact on our family, as a whole. My son has struggled with drug addiction since his late teens. He is about to turn 25, next month. He has been to detox/treatment multiple (4) times, but I truly feel this will be his last. He is 40+ days sober with a brand new zest for (sober) life...

Kelly F.

I'm not typically one for writing reviews but I truly believe this place saved my son's life. After numerous attempts to get clean in our area, we thought it was best to get away from the people and places that brought him to this point. His therapist was amazing and I feel that he finally got the one-on-one help that he actually needed!


Veritas saved my moms life! I can’t put into words how grateful I am for the staff there and the program they run. She’s been to treatment a few times in the last 4 years but always continued to drink. Now she’s coming up on a year sober and it’s amazing to see her grow...

Steve F.

This place definitely saved my brother's life. He had been to a few other centers previously, but there is a clear difference here. The staff truly cares and goes out of their way, and his therapist was great...

Nicholas Y.

This was a great for me to detox! The staff is very support and my 30 days went much faster than I anticipated . Although I know the “real work” begins when I get back home, this has been a great launching pad for me...
