We Believe the Family Unit is Critical to Recovery

At IHC, we believe the term ‘family’ consists of anyone we deem as family. Here, individuals do not have to be blood-related to be considered family. A family member is a person who has played a supportive, long-term role in a person’s life. Through our family therapy sessions, families can begin to heal by gaining new insights into themselves and their loved ones. We believe that including family in the recovery process is too often overlooked. Our goal is to address the entire modern family unit so all parties can gain a clearer idea of who they are, the roles they play, and how addiction and co-occurring mental disorders impact the family unit as a whole. This is how true healing begins.

Family Therapy and Addiction and Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders

Family therapy is commonly used in treating substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. Evidence shows that family therapy supports participants to challenge their belief systems and values, learn to communicate better, improve destructive patterns of behavior, create and hold healthy boundaries, and more.

IHC’s family therapy program offers many benefits for participants. For example, families:

Who Can Benefit from Family Therapy?

Family therapy sessions have proven to be an effective form of treatment for families dealing  with a variety of stressful situations and emotional issues, including:


We understand that seeking treatment is not easy and the last thing a person needs is to fear is that they will be exposed by treatment staff for doing so. Fortunately, the strict rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) are designed to protect patient confidentiality.  We respect these rules and we follow them. Additionally, many of our leadership are in recovery and some of our family members, so we know first hand the need to seek treatment for ourselves and our loved ones in private.
