The Family Addiction Program at Hotel California by the Sea is not the same as the family and marriage counseling that we offer to our clients. The Family Program occurs once a month at HCBTS. Hotel California by the Sea’s clinical leaders created our groundbreaking monthly family program for the loved ones of those in our care whose family members need extra support from other families and professional addiction experts.

The Effects of Addiction on Family

The unique family program at HCBTS is designed to help client’s family members and other loved ones recover from someone’s addiction. This program offers support, education, and community for clients and their family members.

Often, family members can feel a wide variety of emotions about their loved one’s addiction.

Family members may experience fear, anger, frustration, resentment, worry, grief, and pain at the hands of their loved one’s substance abuse problems. Sometimes, parents, spouses, and other family members find that they also feel incredible responsibility or blame themselves for their loved one’s addiction, or feel a need to save this person from their disease.

Hotel California by the Sea understands that by addressing all of these emotions with clients and their families, the entire family unit has a greater chance at full recovery from substance use disorders. In our Family Program at HCBTS, we address the multiple struggles that family members and other loved ones go through during someone’s addiction.

Involving family members and other supportive loved ones in a recovering addict’s treatment has been repeatedly proven to help clients heal wholly from addiction. Also, our family program can help create healthier and happier family members of those struggling with addiction and alcoholism.

Strained Relationships From Addiction

Addiction can sometimes tear people apart and put painful distance between family members. A lot of people who abuse drugs or alcohol inadvertently leave a path of destruction behind them.

Often people who abuse substances do embarrassing things that affect you profoundly, yet they may never even remember those things. You are left scared, mad, and ashamed. And they don’t even know why you feel that way. All of these factors can put a strain on relationships and cause family members to feel radically disconnected.

Financial Burdens of Addiction

There are often financial ramifications caused by drug or alcohol abuse. You may have lent your loved one money, or perhaps they may have taken money or valuables from you. It’s hard to discuss finance when speaking about addiction. Still, it is also difficult to ignore the deep cuts that financial difficulties can evoke.

At Hotel California by the Sea (HCBTS), we recognize that family and loved ones have suffered. They need time and space to heal. Join one of our Family Program meetings and witness first-hand how we can help you mend what addiction has broken.

Family, loved ones, and an overall strong support network is each central to a person’s substance abuse recovery. Many treatment approaches include family therapy. Here at HCBTS, we recognize these methods as vital to the future and continued success of our clients.

How Does Family Programming Work?

Hotel California by the Sea offers ongoing family programs to the family members and loved ones of our clients who are in recovery for a substance use disorder.

Family Addiction Program vs. Individual Therapy

Recovery begins with the person who has an alcohol or drug addiction but includes a client’s entire support network. Hotel California by the Sea works with clients to create and effectively implement a program of addiction treatment tailored to the needs of the man, woman, or young adult who trusts us with their recovery.

Family programs, family counseling, and individual therapy all work in tandem with one another to encourage ultimate and well-rounded healing for our clients and their loved ones.

While individual therapy focuses on the well-being and treatment of the client. Hotel California by the Sea’s Family Therapy zeroes in on the needs of each of the client’s family members. How each family member interacts with the others is a complex and highly interconnected phenomenon.

Untangling these intricacies and figuring out how loved ones relate to each other can help bring about positive changes to the relationships and to the family as a whole.

Through our family program, HCBTS can help you create boundaries and restore bonds that will lead to a more healthy space for every member of a family to coexist. Our family approach also allows the recovering member to heal and to continue on with their sobriety.

Family Program 2020 & 2021

Hotel California by the Sea’s clinical team holds our Family Program once every month. On the first Friday of every month, we open our doors to the men, women, and young adults who are the loved ones of our clients to gather together and receive support and information on addiction.

You can come once, twice, or as many times as you need to gain valuable insight into the disease of addiction and better support yourself and your loved one in their recovery. You will always find something new at our Family Program to help you achieve a more balanced and positive life.
