Florida Intensive Family Program

Family Therapy in Southern Florida

The Intensive Family Program (IFP) at Celadon Recovery cultivates relationships, and offers an opportunity for healing and mending broken relationships. Celadon Recovery recognizes the family systems are an important part of each residents recovery process. We also understand that families have struggles, strengths, and challenges that are unique and are to be addressed on an individual basis.

Family Therapy Helps Everyone Heal from Addiction

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 is okay—the counselor will work with whoever is present. It’s important to note that restoring relationships takes time. That said, our family therapy in Florida seeks to speed up the process to improve communication and reduce tension within the family structure.

  • Psychodrama – This is a style of role-playing where family participants recreate scenes from their lives. The psychotherapist then leads a discussion about the scene.
  • Art therapy – This form of therapy uses art for patients (and their families) to express their thoughts and emotions. It can be effective for family members who struggle to communicate verbally.
  • Music therapy – Music can be a very reflective and meaningful for young adults to express their emotions most clearly. This non-verbal therapy (many times) displays pain felt, but not revealed,
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy – This tried and true therapy helps people to understand, and then change their destructive thinking patterns and behaviors.

Our Intensive Family Program Promotes Recovery

Family participants can share their feelings about their loved one’s alcohol or drug addiction, as well as any dual diagnosis mental health problems. In this manner, previous behaviors are exposed, and a new confidence is built – together! Celadon’s immersive family program is a lot like group therapy. Sessions are conducted by your loved one’s primary therapist, and all family members are encouraged to join. When this happens, all participants come together in a profound way so healing can begin for all involved. Please don’t ignore your family member’s substance or mental health problem. It will NOT get better on its own and can overpower families before they even know it.

Family therapy can offer support for:

  • Addiction
  • Mental health disorders
  • Money disputes
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Betrayal
  • Divorce / separation
  • Family fears
