What is Family Therapy?

Family therapy at Scottsdale Providence Recovery Center is grounded in the belief that a family operates as a system of interconnected parts. When one part is disrupted—be it through mental illness or addiction—every other part feels the impact. This therapy aims to address the shifts in family dynamics that occur under the strain of behavioral health disorders, working to mend the fabric of the family unit through guided, therapeutic interventions.

Navigating Family Dynamics

When mental illness or addiction touches a family, the effects resonate with each member, creating pain and confusion that doesn’t simply vanish when the affected individual begins treatment. At Scottsdale Providence Recovery Center, we understand the complex dynamics at play and offer family therapy as a vital component of holistic healing. Our approach complements individual therapy, ensuring that healing and recovery encompass not just the individual but their entire family system.

Benefits of Family Therapy

Our family therapy sessions are designed to heal wounds and rebuild trust within the family. By addressing issues such as built-up lies, unequal distribution of responsibilities, and unhealthy behavioral patterns, we facilitate a transformative process. The ultimate goal is to foster a supportive environment where all members can thrive, especially as they adjust to the changes brought about by a family member’s recovery journey.

What to Expect in a Family Therapy Session

Family therapy sessions at our center are shaped by the principle that healing is a collective journey. Sessions may begin once the primary therapist determines the individual is stable enough for family engagement. Throughout treatment, we ensure families remain informed and involved, even if direct family therapy has yet to commence. Additionally, we offer a family support group via Zoom on the third Wednesday of every month, providing ongoing support and connection.

Finding a Family Therapist

Our team of therapists, including specialists in the IFS modality, is dedicated to supporting families through their healing journey. The appropriateness of family therapy and the specific modalities used are determined collaboratively, with the primary focus always on what will best serve the family’s needs.

Empowering Families Through Therapy

At Scottsdale Providence Recovery Center, we believe in the power of family therapy to catalyze lasting recovery and healing. By addressing the complex dynamics of mental illness and addiction within the family system, we help families emerge stronger, more connected, and ready to support each other through the challenges of recovery. This belief extends to our adoption of the Internal Family Systems model, an evidence-based approach to psychotherapy that focuses on healing the wounded parts of the psyche and restoring harmony. With a team of seven therapists, each bringing different specialties to the table, SPRC provides a well-rounded and effective therapeutic environment for both individuals and their families, fostering hope and facilitating lasting change.
