WHAT IS A FAMILY GROUP PROGRAMME?

We recognise that it can be a difficult time when a friend or family member suffer with addiction.

Our Family Group Programme is facilitated by Therapists providing support, education and advice on addiction.

Family members play a pivotal role in helping the individual recognise the need for help and provide support in recovery.  Part of the Two Month Lovelong House Addiction Programme will include a weekly 1-hour group therapy session over 8 weeks. This will provide family members or partners that have been affected by addiction, a chance to gain a better understanding of the processes of addiction and how they can best support their loved one on discharge.   The Family Programme will focus on educating on the disease of addiction and looking at topics such as enabling and boundary setting. The programme may also include therapy sessions with the client and their families to look at any issues which need to be addressed.

 

WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?

The 8 week group therapy sessions cover all aspects of addiction and how best to provide support once treatment is complete. In addition to the family programme, a therapist facilitated family meeting can be arranged during residential treatment.

WHEN AND WHERE DOES IT TAKE PLACE?

The Family Group Programme is held at Lovelong House on a Wednesday Evening.  Family members are invited to attend these weekly group sessions from the time their family member is admitted to Lovelong House.
