Family Treatment Program

Family Program

Sovereign Health understands the devastating impact of mental health disorders, substance abuse and co-occurring conditions on individuals and their families. As an effort to promote healing for everyone involved in the treatment process, Sovereign Health provides supportive family services — including weekly family groups, family therapy and an intensive family program — to patients and their family members while their loved ones are in treatment for mental illness, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders at our intensive family program.

These family services offered at Sovereign Health provide patients and their families with education, psychotherapy, resources and support they can use to repair or strengthen their broken relationships to provide full family recovery. Family members can also learn how they can provide crucial support to their loved ones while they are in treatment to help them avoid relapse and continue forward in their recovery.

The presence and participation of family members in treatment is important, as it provides patients with great emotional and motivational support during rehabilitation and greatly reduces the risk of relapse after they have completed their program. As such, Sovereign Health integrates the family into all aspects of the treatment process with the patient’s consent. As such, family members may be engaged in all aspects of treatment, including pre-admissions, admissions, discharge and recovery management. Families are encouraged to participate in our family groups, family therapy and the two-day intensive family program while their loved ones are in treatment at Sovereign Health.

Family groups

At each rehabilitation center location, Sovereign Health’s weekly family groups provide patients and their family members with education about the patient’s presenting condition and issues related to their substance use disorder, mental illness or co-occurring disorders. Family groups are led by a group facilitator who provides families with psychoeducation, or education about the condition and other specific issues related to the condition, and encourages family members to participate and share their experiences and how they relate to specific topics.

Some of the topics discussed in family groups include:

  • Family roles and dynamics
  • Establishing appropriate boundaries
  • Enabling and codependency
  • Managing symptoms and triggers
  • Continuing care planning
  • Recovery management services

Family therapy

Sovereign Health offers family therapy for substance abuse and mental health conditions affecting individuals and their families. Family therapy is offered to patients and their families, including counseling for families of drug addicts and other types of addiction help for families. During family therapy, patients and their families can discuss their experiences and issues as they relate to their loved one’s substance use disorder and/or mental illness in a safe environment.

How do I Start

Family therapy is useful for helping family members understand why their loved one exhibits certain behaviors as well as what they can expect while their loved one is in treatment, which can reduce feelings of grief, anger, stress and/or conflict. Patients and their families who participate in family therapy sessions at Sovereign Health’s rehabilitation center can also strengthen and improve their troubled family relationships, communication and conflict-resolution skills. In addition, family members can address specific problems, including the impact of the substance abuse and/or mental illness on the entire family, while their loved one is in treatment at Sovereign Health.

Intensive Family Program

Sovereign Health’s two-day intensive family program is offered on a monthly basis to patients and their family members at each treatment location. The Intensive Family Program includes the following elements:

  • Presentations by clinical staff
  • Personal and family goal setting
  • Reading and reflection
  • Workshops
  • Education
  • Individual, group and family psychotherapy
  • Support groups

The goal of Sovereign Health’s Intensive Family Program is to provide education to patients and their families, support positive family relationships, and provide patients and their families with support and resources based on their needs.
