Family behavioral therapy
Family behavior therapy (FBT) is an all-inclusive treatment modality used to rebuild the family unit. Addiction and mental health disorders not only hurt you as the individual, but also negatively impact the whole family. Akua’s FREE family program teaches open communication, healthy boundaries, self-control, stimulus-control, conflict resolution skills, employment-seeking skills, and other essential skills needed to maintain a healthy family unit during recovery. Family members meet with the therapist to discuss emotions, thoughts, and negative underlying issues contributing to mental health and substance use disorders.
