Substance Abuse & Drug Addiction Family Therapy

The Addiction Family Therapy Mission

The mission of the Family Services Department is to provide patients and families with support and education on the disease of addiction, cross addiction and the impact on the family. Our addiction and substance abuse family therapy program is designed to assess your family’s needs, educate you about chemical dependence and offers ongoing family support during and/or after the patient’s addiction treatment.

The disease of addiction has significant physical, emotional and social consequences for the individual seeking addiction treatment and for the family and significant others who have been impacted by the disease. We view family as an essential component of a patient’s ongoing recovery program and seek to involve family members in the addiction treatment and recovery process.

What to Expect from Addiction Family Therapy

Once a patient is admitted to Talbott Recovery, a counselor who specializes in addiction and substance abuse family therapy is assigned to respond to any questions/concerns you may have. We understand this has been a very difficult and confusing time for a patient’s family members. We believe our addiction family therapy will begin to answer some of the questions you have about what needs to be done by the patient and family.

Our addiction family therapy program consists of: 
  • Five family sessions (via telephone or on campus for Atlanta area residents)
  • A three day family workshop held on campus during the addiction treatment
  • Education on the disease of addiction
  • A supportive environment
  • Opportunities to address questions and concerns

Visitation

Because patients are encouraged to bond with their patient residential community members, visitors are allowed in the community only in special circumstances throughout addiction treatment.
