Atlanta Family Therapy Program

Never miss an opportunity

Contact Samba Recovery Today

It’s not unusual to find family therapy for mental health in many psychological cases needing treatment. Family therapy is a type of counseling that involves all members of a nuclear or extended family. Standard family therapy techniques include:

  • Psychodrama – This is a type of role-playing where family members act out scenes from their lives. The therapist then leads a discussion about the scene.
  • Art therapy – This type of therapy uses art to express thoughts and feelings. It can be helpful for family members who struggle to communicate verbally.
  • Music therapy – Using music can be very profound and meaningful for yound adults to express their emotions most clearly.
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) – This is a type of therapy that helps people to change negative thinking patterns and behaviors.

Family therapy sessions are conducted with the entire family present so that everyone has a chance to share their thoughts and feelings openly. However, not all family members will be willing or able to participate in every session. That’s okay—the therapist will work with whatever level of participation they can get from each family member. Overall, family therapy aims to improve communication and resolve conflict within the family unit.

Atlanta Family program for addiction

Our Family Program Supports Healing

Family members can share their feelings about their loved one’s alcohol or drug addiction, as well as any connected behavioral problems. In this way, old behaviors are exposed, and new trust is built. Samba’s family program is a lot like group therapy. Sessions are conducted by your family member’s primary therapist, and all family members are encouraged to attend. When this happens, all stakeholders come together in a meaningful way so healing can begin for all affected. Please don’t ignore your family member’s substance problem. It does not get better on its own and can overwhelm families very quickly.

Family therapists can provide support for:

  • Substance use
  • Co-occurring mental health disorders
  • Financial disputes
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Betrayal
  • Divorce
  • Child custody fears
