    Family and Couples Counseling

    Often families and friends are concerned about someone they love who uses alcohol and/or drugs. The person using drugs or alcohol may not be ready for recovery and the family may be at a loss as to how to handle the situation. Counseling can help the family learn new coping skills. This is often accomplished in one or two sessions. It is possible that once the family gets help, the substance user will also accept help, too. Once the family changes the way it handles the situation, the drug or alcohol user will have to make some changes. That change may be to enter a recovery program.

    If the substance user is entering into the recovery process, the family may need counseling to help adjust to the changes. This is true of parents, spouses, adult children, friends, and others who are close to him or her. A single session may be enough to help the family at least a little in this situation.
