Drug or alcohol addiction causes problems in all areas of a person’s life, and it can stem from earlier life experiences. Therefore, getting to the heart of the issue is essential. One type of therapy is quite effective at helping not only the addicted individual but also those who are close to this person. Structural family therapy, or SFT, helps address the patterns that developed between family members and find solutions for better understanding.
At Memphis Recovery Centers, we proudly provide structural family therapy in Memphis, TN, for families that are trying to heal from the effects of addiction. A healthy family unit is an essential component for people who are determined to embrace genuine, long-lasting recovery. That’s why our Memphis Recovery Centers team recognizes the benefits of structural family therapy and how it can solidify the skills and strategies learned in addiction treatment. If you’re interested in learning more about structural family therapy, reach out to our team today by calling 866.304.8254 or filling out our online contact form.
About Structural Family Therapy
Sometimes, mental health issues such as personality disorders, depression, and anxiety can exist within families. These issues become interwoven in the structure of the ways in which members interact. They can lead to destructive and dysfunctional patterns.
Structural family therapy focuses on altering these family structures instead of addressing what is thought to be “wrong” with each member. It’s the goal of this approach to teach better communication and boundaries among members so that the resulting family structure will be healthier.
How SFT Works
At Memphis Recovery Center, our therapist will observe the interactions between family members and then work to create a structural chart to demonstrate observed interactions. This chart, or map, will help to visibly show relationship patterns between specific people within the family structure.
From there, they can point out problems that exist and suggest potential solutions for the family to work on. The therapist will provide your family with hands-on tools you can use to improve relations. You’ll be taught ways to make changes and given the opportunity to practice these suggestions.
