As the pattern of co-dependency exists within the family system, recovery requires that family members learn how to communicate with each other and deal openly with their feelings. They should also learn to detach themselves emotionally and deal with the problem practically. Family therapy at Srinidhi De-addiction & Rehabilitation Centre also includes an introduction to a 12-step recovery program and follow-up program. In many cases, family members undergo severe stress because of the chemical dependent in their lives. Sometimes, they suffer more than the dependent himself. Family counseling forms an important part in our recovery programs.
