Come Together to Fight Addiction

Family TherapyHaving support is essential for those who are working to break free from addiction. However, addiction and co-occurring mental health concerns can make it difficult to maintain bonds of trust with loved ones. Addiction can wreak havoc on families, causing rifts and communication breakdowns. Healing these relationships is as important as healing physically from addiction.

A Better State’s family therapy program in New Hampshire can help. Family therapy is a form of counseling that involves all members of a family unit. In our programs, loved ones might work with a therapist to better understand addiction, learn how to support their family member without enabling them, and heal past trauma. When appropriate, our team will connect with clients’ loved ones to include them in addiction therapy.

Family therapy can help those in recovery prepare for the transition back home. With the support of loved ones, lasting sobriety is within reach. Learn more about how our family therapy program can help you or your loved one by contacting A Better State today.

What Is Family Therapy?

Family therapy is a form of counseling that involves all members of a family unit. It is often used to treat addiction and co-occurring mental health concerns. A few of the topics that might be covered in family therapy sessions include:

Past Trauma

Those in active addiction can unintentionally hurt loved ones and break trust

Effective Communication

Addiction can cause communication breakdowns within families. Family therapy can help build bridges and improve understanding

Healthy Boundaries

It can be hard to know how to support a family member with addiction without enabling them. Family therapy can help set appropriate boundaries


The focus of family therapy is often on healing past hurts and rebuilding relationships
No matter what your family’s needs are, our team can tailor therapy to fit.

What Clients Can Expect in Family Therapy

What does a typical family therapy session look like? First, our team will conduct an assessment to get to know your family’s unique situation. Then, we will develop a treatment plan with clear goals. Throughout treatment, we will check in with you to see how things are going and make changes to the plan as needed.

Depending on your family’s needs, therapy might look different from one session to the next. Some families might meet with a therapist once a week, while others might meet several times a week. We also offer both group and individual therapy. No matter what your family’s needs are, we will work with you to create a plan that meets you where you are.

The A Better State Approach to Addiction Treatment

At A Better State, we approach addiction treatment with the whole person in mind—and that includes their loved ones. We believe that family is an essential part of the recovery journey, which is why we offer family therapy as part of our comprehensive addiction treatment programs.

Our programs include:

  • Partial hospitalization programs – This level of care is great for those who are ready to begin their recovery journey but still need a lot of support
  • Intensive outpatient programs – This program is perfect for those who want to continue living at home while they receive treatment
  • Outpatient programs – Designed for those who have completed a higher level of care or for those who only need minimal support

Through both evidence-based and holistic therapies, we help our clients create and sustain lasting sobriety.
