Treating Families with Addiction and Trauma: A Chronic Disease Model of Care

march 23, 2022

Foundry Steamboat, in partnership with Ashley, New Paradigm Recovery, and Sandstone Care, offered this informative Continuing Education event attended by hundreds of caregivers!

What is the process of treating the impact of trauma, addiction, and life-threatening illness on individuals, couples, and families?
 Even with our best efforts, solutions to these life-changing issues are difficult to find. The longer people live with the problem, the more normal the anxiety, pain, and fear become and the harder it is to gather the energy and insight needed to make the changes required to restore overall health. Over time, lives and relationships that were once satisfying and joyful become painful and conflicted.

The longer an individual and their family live with active addiction and trauma, a new normal has already started to form. There is no going back to normal. Therefore, successful therapy is built on a foundation of client and family acceptance, hope, honesty, and the willingness to engage in difficult conversations.

Healing occurs when individuals and their family members can move beyond the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors that maintain their problems and begin to engage in new thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors that promote healing!

A primary focus of this presentation is the importance of treating family systems. Dr. Barnes developed the Michael Barnes Family Institute as a new model for addressing substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders in families. The program does not require that an individual member be in treatment to participate, and families experiencing addictive disorders can engage in the program at any stage.
