Family therapy

Involving the family is often an important part of treatment

Involvement of family members in alcohol, drug & gambling addiction treatment and strong support networks of friends and colleagues is vital to successful recovery. The more the family know about the addiction and the know-how to offer the right support, the better the outcome for the patient.

Healing words in family therapy

Our team knows the importance of family involvement of family members in alcohol, drug and behavioural addiction treatment.  The strength of friends, family and colleagues is vital to successful recovery, but the same network can simultaneously feel traumatised by the addiction and need support themselves.

The more the family knows about the addiction and know-how to offer the right support, the better the outcome for the patient.

Our family therapy programme helps patients and families to connect and share their feelings of shame, hurt and anger.

The goals of family therapy include:

  • It helps them to communicate again
  • rebuild their damaged relationships
  • Educate the family about the disease of addiction
  • Help them to understand the behaviours of the addict
  • Guide the family to cope with the problem
  • Support and assist family members in rebuilding their lives

We provide specialised therapy for the patient and their family/spouse We invite family members to visit Castle Craig on Sundays when we hold a family program with educational lectures about alcohol & drugs, family therapy sessions and self-help meetings such as Al-Anon and Families Anonymous.
