Counseling for families of drug addicts
When a family member or loved one chooses a substance abuse treatment program, the family and support network will feel a combination of emotions; relief, confusion, exhaustion, hope, and fear. While the client is getting treatment, it is important that the family understands how to deal with their loved one once they return home; how to keep them accountable, set healthy boundaries, end the enabling, and provide the healthy support needed.
Why Family Therapy is Important for Substance Abuse
Addiction is a disease that affects the entire family, and many of our clients understand because they have strong relationships at home. Family therapy has been proven effective and can be done in tandem with other types of therapy, like individual and group therapy, and play a major role in successful recovery. The benefits of family therapy include the following:
- Helps recovering addicts understand the role that family plays in recovery
- Improves communication between family members in a constructive environment
- Provides accountability for recovering addicts
- Can help loved ones and recovering addicts identify coping mechanisms

I attribute all the great things that have come to me from my experience at this recovery center. This is not a place to be counted as a number. This family owned and operated center went over and beyond to help support me and my family throughout the hardest times of our life. If anyone is wavering in their decision on where to become sober, I highly suggest Footprints Beachside Recovery”
“This is a great place with people that really care about the people seeking treatment. We sent a loved one to footprints and had a great experience with great results. John devoted so much time to our family before anyone even stepped foot in the door and our loved one has come out of treatment as a new person!”
“It is hard to overstate the importance Footprints has had on my life… I arrived in a bad state, but over the course of my stay was able to stabilize, gain a real measure of hope, and begin the process of a lifelong recovery.”

The living quarters are very nice and I met some extremely wonderful people there that I have kept in touch with. They are the most generous and caring people you could hope to find!!”
“As the mother of an adult son who has suffered with alcoholism his entire adult life, I couldn’t be more thankful for the gifts Footprints has given our family, and especially, my son’s baby girl, our granddaughter. […] It was absolutely the best investment of his time and benefits. We can’t thank you enough, but please know that we’re thankful for you each and every day.”
“Footprints was the third treatment center I had been to, and by far the best. The staff is very professional and truly cares about the needs of their clients. The location is unreal! It is located in a safe and beautiful area, the house I stayed at was probably the nicest house I’ve lived in, not even a quarter mile from the beach. I had an amazing time there while learning about myself, how to stay sober, and how to have healthy, sober friendships!”
