Family therapy is key to recovery. We set the stage during an inpatient residency, and give people the tools to continue the work once they go home. Couple and family therapy is offered to residents and their families when it is feasible for the family members to visit the facility.
In normal times, we do family visitation. Now we do zoom too. We want to include family—which can be critically effective in treatment—because it's a connection to the outside arena, the life a resident wants to get back to and live in in a happy healthy way.
