The Kemah Palms Family Addiction Treatment Program Weekend
Experts often refer to chemical dependency as a family disease because it affects the entire system in subtle and dramatic ways. Promises are broken, dreams are abandoned, and hopes are crushed under the onslaught of obsessive and compulsive substance use. The Kemah Palms Recovery Family Addiction Treatment Program Weekend can help the entire household begin healing.
People who struggle with addiction members learn to distrust, edit feelings, and avoid conflicts. People living in the same home can lose the ability to communicate and end up harboring ill will, confusion, and hurt feelings.
Whether your family is going through a loved one’s treatment for the first time, or if your loved one has tried to get clean multiple times, the Kemah Palms Family Weekend is designed to do the following:
- Assist the family system in understanding the nature of substance use disorder
- Promote direct communication among family members
- Provide a way for family members to express repressed thoughts and feelings
- Identify the “rules and roles” that help families survive the effects of addiction
- Introduce 12 Step recovery program options of Al Anon, and Codependents Anonymous
- Develop a plan of recovery that includes an individual and family plan
- Teach the do’s and don’ts when living with addiction
More About the Kemah Palms Family Weekend
Using a blend of experiential and educational approaches, the Kemah Palms Family Weekend is a three-day intensive family addiction treatment program offered monthly and led by our masters-level, licensed clinician, Noel Love. The session is ideal for immediate family members, significant partners, and others who are closely associated with the chemically dependent person. Throughout the three days, participants will experience a series of educational lectures, multi-family groups, individual family therapy and the development of a family recovery plan. You also will be exposed to Al Anon and given an eyewitness glance into what your loved one’s recovery looks like in Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or Cocaine Anonymous. When the entire family recovers, everyone benefits and the likelihood of your loved one achieving long-term sobriety increases.
At Kemah Palms Recovery Center, our addiction therapy services take a systemic approach to treating substance use disorder; we believe that best practices include treating the entire system, not just the alcoholic or drug addict. We believe that recovery is a family affair and that your family deserves to participate in a powerful, dynamic session that promises to make positive change possible.
