Family Meetings

Substance Use Disorders impact the client’s family and their loved ones. For some clients, a useful component of treatment is a family meeting. Family meetings are conducted as part of treatment upon the request of the client. Family meetings have several advantages. They provide an opportunity for the client and their family members to begin a discussion about the impact the client’s addiction has had on their family and their loved ones.

Family meetings provide an opportunity for the client and their family to discuss post treatment expectations regarding continued treatment and the consequences of relapse. Further, family meetings provide an opportunity for family members to gain knowledge about the disease of addiction, it’s impact on family members and the significant benefit family members can receive through support groups and counseling.
