Family wellness in the recovery of patients

A strength-based approach to family wellness in supporting the individual with recovery includes validation and acknowledgement of adverse childhood experiences, protective factors, and resiliency. Treating the family system in this strength-based model is a collaborative process with the family members and sets goals for a future of hope and recovery.

  • Describe the importance of family involvement and therapy during the recovery process
