Family Counseling

EMERGENCE values the involvement of family members as crucial to the overall success of the clients's treatment episode. Clients are offered extrinsic rewards for family participation to maximize family involvement, an important indicator of successful clinical outcomes.

Our family sessions assist with improved communication, clearly defining roles and boundaries and a reduction or elimination of guilt, shame and blaming that impedes family growth, development and harmony. Interventions aim to challenge the family's view of the existing problems and expand its options for response. We assist in altering the family's interactions to clarify roles and responsibilities.

Our family service component assists family members as well as the client to progress through the stages of change in preparation for advancement to the maintenance stage of recovery. Family members are encouraged to be actively engaged in the client\'s treatment through attendance at his or her treatment groups. Emergence provides multi-family group sessions in addition to individual family or couples counseling.
