'Addiction Treatment in Family Systems'

thursday, April 13, 2017

Registration and Networking: 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM
Presentation: 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM

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 professionals can facilitate the family recovery process in the treatment of addictions. 


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