St. Louis, Missouri Family Addiction Program
At HCBTS, we understand how addiction can devastate a family unit and put immense strain on our close relationships. Besides offering behavioral health services such as individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, and other specialized treatments at our rehab in Missouri, we also created an exclusive monthly therapy program where clients and their families can learn about addiction and seek support from other families in their position.
The Family Addiction Program at HCBTS is a place to learn, thrive, and connect, and it is entirely free for all of our clients, their families, and Hotel California by the Sea alumni. We strongly encourage our past and present clients and their family members to take advantage of our free monthly family program to learn more about how we help heal entire family systems from the disease of addiction.
Monthly Family Program: Connect, Support, Heal
The experienced staff, multi-faceted treatment offerings, and unmatched amenities at Hotel California by the Sea draw on more than thirty years of expertise in helping those with substance use disorders overcome their suffering. If you are a victim of substance abuse, we are glad you have decided to look for recovery treatment options.
SAMHSA writes, “The idea of family implies an enduring involvement on an emotional level.” Whatever family relationships exist for you or your loved one who suffers from an addiction, those ties can play an essential role in treating substance abuse. That’s why at Hotel California by the Sea, we pay special attention not only to our clients but those whom our clients care deeply for
It can be challenging to detangle the web of emotions and experiences we share with those around us that we call “relationships” and somehow put these relationships together to be healthy and functioning again after addiction. Everyone knows that interpersonal relationships are sometimes complicated. But throw in an alcohol or drug use disorder, and the problems can seem impossible.
HCBTS, St. Louis, is here to help
We understand that alcohol and drug addiction does not just affect our clients, but those who love the clients as well. We know that to help our clients, we also need to encourage healing within the entire family unit.
Families and loved ones are important to the successful and ongoing recovery of a person in substance abuse treatment.
Restoring Bonds: Monthly Family Addiction Program
Individual therapy helps people suffering from substance abuse learn how to handle their addiction cessation and manage their part in relationships. Family therapy looks at the addiction through the eyes and minds of the loved ones in our clients’ lives.
However, Hotel California by the Sea in St. Louis, Missouri’s exclusive monthly family program is a place where clients and their loved ones can learn about the disease of addiction, bond over emotional transformations, and connect with others who have had similar experiences.
The National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW) says that 8.7 million children live in households where at least one parent suffers from a substance use disorder. At HCBTS St Louis, we have decades of experience assisting clients with rebuilding the trust and love with their children. Although children must be at least sixteen years of age to attend in person, HCBTS can work with clients to facilitate family therapy involving the youths in their lives.
