Learn about the Clearbrook Family Education Program

Family treatment is viewed as a vital and necessary component to enhance the recovery of a chemically dependent person, as well as to promote overall family recovery from the effects that chemical dependency has on individual family members. Family members often suffer from denial, self-blame, guilt, a sense of failure, attempting to fix the problem themselves, anxiety, depression, repressed feelings and stress-related illnesses. It’s important that the entire family unit has the opportunity to come together and heal from the addiction that was present. This disease can completely take over one’s life and destroy relationships. At Clearbrook Treatment Centers, we bring the family together during the addiction recovery process. We understand the many struggles that each member faces throughout addiction and we can help a family overcome this disease together.

What to Expect During the Family Program

The Clearbrook Family Education Program for Addiction offers families and friends treatment for the effects of drug and alcohol addiction on their lives. The addiction family program is provided to family members of the chemically dependent individual three weekends a month, beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Friday and ending at noon on Sunday. The Clearbrook Family Program is also open to those people who believe they may value from this weekend program.

Families participate in group therapy and individual counseling sessions. The program incorporates the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous in order to provide a framework through which families can address compulsive behavior, and enabling issues. These exercises and role-playing teach the understanding of addictive behaviors and provide better skills at utilizing this knowledge not only in expressing feelings, but also in one’s interaction with the addict. At the end of this program, families have a complete understanding of the addiction that is present and they learn ways to help their loved one through the recovery journey.

Complete Recovery is Possible

Families are encouraged to take advantage of the Clearbrook Family Program during a family member or loved one’s stay at Clearbrook. This addiction family program allows each member to discuss their feelings and emotions and how the addiction has affected them personally during therapy. It’s important for each member to learn about the enabling behaviors they may have been utilizing so that they can properly handle the addictive behaviors in the future. An individual suffering from substance abuse will greatly benefit from the support and love of their family members and our addiction family program brings everyone together. Once treatment is completed, the recovering individual will transition back into everyday life with the support and resources needed for a successful recovery journey.
