At Harmony Hills in Florida, we understand that addiction affects the entire family. Families need education on addiction and what to expect from treatment and, also, from their loved ones in the various stages of addiction and recovery. Family dynamics is critical to sustaining recovery. Each family member plays a critical role in the health and well-being of the person with the substance use condition, as well as with each other. It is demonstrated that outcomes improve and recovery becomes more sustainable for those families who engage in family therapy. Family therapy establishes and strengthens family bonds.
Why Family Therapy for Addiction Is Beneficial
As you watch your loved one suffer, sometimes you become so focused on him or her that you minimize your own pain. It’s not uncommon for you or your family members to feel hopeless while dealing with your loved one’s issues. Family therapy for addiction at Harmony Hills helps re-establish a family’s psychological and emotional health. Going through the process with your loved one helps strengthen your family’s bond.
We also educate family members about addiction and what influences it. Our program helps participants cope with their thoughts and feelings during their loved ones’ struggles, showing users and their families how to provide compassionate support without enabling negative behaviors. We also teach them and their loved ones what to expect post-treatment, and how to maintain physical and mental sobriety.
What to Expect During Family Therapy for Addiction
During family therapy for addiction, Harmony Hills invites families and loved ones to come to the facility. Each month, we also offer a Family Connect Weekend. This gives families an opportunity to embark on their own path to wellness. Our program includes:
- Educational lectures
- Group discussions
- Interactive therapies
- Personal goal setting

These activities help family members rebuild trusting relationships, set healthy boundaries, reflect, and heal. We provide all families and loved ones with resources to address their own health and well-being, both online and in their community.
