Treating Addiction in Family Systems

Friday, March 10, 2017

Networking: 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM
Presentation: 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Objectives:  The impact of substance abuse is not only experienced by the person suffering with the addiction, but also by all those involved in the addict's life. Change and healing must occur throughout the family system in order for addiction treatment to be effective. This workshop will address the family dynamics of addiction, the psychosocial tasks of healing and how therapists can facilitate the family recovery process in the treatment of addictions. 

In this session participants will:

  • Learn about the dynamics of addiction within family systems and how various family roles perpetuate the addiction cycle. 
  • Learn how these counterproductive dynamics are confronted and changed through counseling and participation in group support networks like Al-Anon and Families Anonymous. 
  • Learn how clinicians can facilitate the healing process through awareness-raising, therapeutic techniques and interventions, and referrals.
