At Bella Monte Recovery Center families are encouraged to participate in the treatment process. We realize that the client is not the only person affected by the addiction, the family is as well. Our family therapy engages both clients and members of their families to increase healthy communication and to support each other during and after treatment. Family therapy at Bella Monte focuses on more than just building a support structure for the client after they leave our center, we also highlight the importance of supporting family members in their own process of healing and recovery from the effects of addiction.
Family involvement will vary depending on each client’s individualized treatment plan, but generally weekly contact involves progress updates or family therapy sessions. Another unique facet of family involvement at Bella Monte is the monthly multi-family educational program. Over the course of a few days in Desert Hot Springs, California families learn about addiction recovery and participate in multi-family and individual family therapy.
