When working with families the Inner Peace team understands how substance use has affected the loved ones. We help family members to understand the disease and how to develop healthy coping strategies, while gaining appropriate support to deal with their own suffering.
Individual Family Work
Skype or individually family therapy sessions (when families visit Inner Peace) are offered under the discretion of the client, the family and the primary therapist. These may include participation with anyone significant in the client’s life such as a spouse, significant other, parent, or sibling.
Family Educational Groups
Inner Peace believes that education about the disease of addiction and related issue is critically important to help families understand the disease of addiction. Due to distance this often is a challenge; however, we use Skype or other online sessions to engage with families.
For some families whose loved ones are not yet ready for residential treatment, we provide online support to assist them in addressing family dynamics, which could support the substance user in moving towards addressing their substance use.
