Admissions For Families
Your Addiction Doesn’t Only Affect You
One of the most important sources of help and support that a recovering addict can depend on is their family. At Sprout Health California Detox, we fully understand the impact that substance abuse and co-occurring disorders can have on families. As a result, we endeavor to provide services that include family groups, family therapy, and other intensive family programs. We are pleased to provide families and patients with the tools and resources needed to repair and heal broken lives and relationships.
Strengthening Family Bonds
With the patient’s consent, we involve the family in every aspect of the patient’s treatment plan. This involvement includes admissions through patient discharge. We know how important families are for a patient’s full recovery. This is why we want families to participate in group therapy, and family therapy. Families can provide our patients with emotional and motivational support to make it through their program. Their involvement tends to reduce the possibility of relapse once the patient’s program is completed.
Addiction can tear family bonds apart. At the moment when the recovering addict needs family the most, relationships may have been damaged beyond repair. This is one of the major reasons why our program is so critical.
The family groups sessions can help families to better understand addiction and related issues that concern mental health, substance abuse, and conditions that can co-occur. Group leaders involve family members in discussions and provide psychoeducation about specific issues related to their loved one’s condition. Families are also welcome to share their experiences during each session. Sessions are kept free of conflict. It is an environment for healing, and not one that places blame. What is shared in family group therapy sessions is also private among the participants.
Families can benefit tremendously from the peer support that other families can offer. There can be great bonding among families and patients when similar stories and experiences are shared. Families are encouraged when they can see others improve who are in a similar situation.
Topics shared and discussed include:
- The family’s role in helping their loved one recover
- Establishing boundaries between the family and the addicted individual
- Codependency and enabling
- Triggers and managing symptoms
- Planning for continuing care
- Alumni services
Another major benefit of family therapy is that families are provided with a safe environment to discuss issues, experiences, and feelings. Grief, anger, stress, and conflict can all be addressed in a positive manner.
Our clinical staff offers informative presentations, family goal-setting exercise, reflection and reading exercises, and helpful workshops. Our patients and family members always thank us for our attention to detail and the vast amount of information they walk away with. We provide an amazing opportunity for everyone to learn more about mental health and addiction disorders, and the resources and treatments necessary for the addicted individual to become abstinence free.
Alumni Services for the Family
We never abandon our patients and families. We continue to offer continuing care services that include a diverse set of support groups, informative and engaging workshops, activities, and events that help patients and families form the strong family bonds that will enable patients to pursue long-term recovery. This is an important program because patients will continually be bombarded with the triggers that led them to addiction in the first place. It may be a lifelong fight, but our patients are armed with the tools that will allow them to beat their addiction for good.
Our cognitive therapies help both patients and their families to understand the connection between their thoughts and behaviors. Change the thought process and one can change behavioral outcomes. We also teach patients the important of finding meaning in life. Study after study has shown that people with purpose are more likely to avoid the triggers that inspire most people to abuse drugs or alcohol. They are generally more positive with a hopeful outlook on life.
Alumni services can include, but are not limited to, educational workshops, A1-Anon meetings, community planned events, family and peer-to-peer support and much more. If you or a loved one is suffering under the weight of an addiction, we encourage you to call us right away to find out about our substance abuse programs, treatments, therapies, and aftercare solutions.
