Family Therapy Evanston

Counseling and Therapy for Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Family therapy is an excellent technique to help you recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Our counseling sessions can help you and your family understand one another, set boundaries, highlight issues, and repair your relationship following substance abuse.

Family Therapy Evanston: Find The Help You Need

Many therapy programs fail to recognize the importance of family when the patient is receiving treatment for substance abuse. However, at CRC, we support and educate families through every step of the recovery process. We aim to guide families and help them understand the recovery journey as their loved one attends evidence-based treatment options.

Our family therapy sessions provide you with a calm platform to speak with your family members and have your voice heard while also offering you a place to learn how to listen and effectively process emotions. During family therapy with CRC, a trained therapist gently guides the conversation to enable everyone to examine the specific dynamics and roles within the family unit and help each individual identify behavioral patterns. Discovering what is at the core of those patterns can be extremely beneficial for long-term healing and recovery.
