Helping Families Heal – Approaching Addiction Treatment Through the Lens of Family Systems Theory

About this Event

Family involvement in treatment is one of the most critical factors in long-term positive outcomes. State and Federal regulations and guidelines stipulate the necessity of family engagement, however funding for family-related services is woefully inadequate. This presentation will offer some ideas for improving family services without putting untenable stress on your facility’s operating budget.

In this presentation, participants will:

• Review the fundamentals of family systems theory

• Explore the intersection of addiction and family system dynamics

• Gain understanding into the generational transmission of relational styles

• Learn about five simple steps treatment providers and individual clinicians can take to improve family engagement
