Our issues don’t just impact us, they radiate out to all who love us, so it makes sense that loved ones should be part of recovery.
Healing for the Whole Family
Watching someone you love struggle with addiction, trauma, or mental health issues is difficult. When a family member heads to treatment, those left behind can experience a wide range of emotions. While our primary focus is the person seeking treatment, we know that providing education and information to loved ones benefits everyone involved. At The Meadows Malibu, we understand this and work with families, including them in the treatment process, so that there can be healing for everyone.
Our Family Program provides an opportunity for patients and their families to understand their family of origin and current family systems and begin the healing process together.
Expert Care for All Involved
Meadows experts have been teaching for decades about the impact an addicted person’s behaviors have on the family. Our Family Program is an important time dedicated to healing those relationships. Designed to give our patients and their loved ones a safe space to engage in open and honest communication while exploring family relational issues, this time of learning, growth, change, and forgiveness ensures that the transition back to daily life is successful.
How Family Programming Works
The group setting – including family, patients, and their family counselor – allows for an open and honest reflection of the behavior patterns that contributed to a patient’s unhealthy lifestyle. Patients and their families learn how to better communicate, support each other emotionally, and establish appropriate boundaries. This collaboration fosters the healing process and brings the family closer together. It has also been proven as a significant factor in long-term healing and recovery.
