Residential Addiction Program

Vancouver, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 3T3 | 604-998-4688

When a family member is struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, the entire family is affected negatively. Communication barriers within families of addicts may cause the addict to withdraw into isolation, leaving their family members feeling frustrated, ashamed, lonely, fearful, depressed, hopeless and angry. The sources of addiction are mental, emotional and psychological in nature, and the addict, as well as their family, need to heal under the care of professionals. At Valiant Recovery, we offer counseling to the families of addicts to help them process the difficult emotions they have confronted, and to create a healthy, supportive environment for the addict to return home to.

Real Solutions to Real Challenges. Common Sense Techniques. Martin very much enjoys working with families and children. Families are systems operating in close quaters, therefore upsets and miscommunications are natural and should be expected. They can be a source of extreme disappointment and pain or they can be opportunitiesfor growth. Martin is trained in Adlarian family therapy and uses Gestalt approaches to families. He has facilitaed parenting groups and worked with children as young as three years old and granparents who were in their eighties. It is his experience that families can enjoy, help, and grow together and most of the time it takes far less work than what they expected.

Together with Joseph, you will learn to think differently about the hurt, confusion and devastation that occurred within your family.

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

The effect of discord within the family may impact other areas of your life. Often times children need to feel that they have a specific place in the family in order to move through life positively. When this is not the case it may be expressed through unwanted behaviours. Parents may also be struggling to find respectful and responsible parenting techniques that will allow them to obtain the desired behaviours they expect from their children. Together we will find ways to understand each member’s perspective, establish core beliefs and negotiate acceptable compromises in order to restore harmony in your family.

For years, I've worked with families to help them find solutions to the conflicts that often get in the way of healthy interactions between members. I find this work so rewarding, mainly because I've witnessed a great deal of healing within family units. I'm very experienced and have a great deal of knowledge about family 'systems'. Yes, systems they are. Even when members attempt to escape by taking a 'geographical cure', they usually find themselves as enmeshed in the system as they always were. No, as a long-term solution, avoidance simply doesn't work! I can help you and your family get to the root of the conflict(s), and let go of the past so you can finally move forward with peace.

As a mother of two, I am constantly witnessing my theoretical background as a counsellor flying out the window. Parenting tests our mettle by the minute, and even the hardiest of us all, get bent. I use an attachment based parenting approach, whereby our bond and connection to our children is primary. Together we work to establish this trust and connection, and all else follows, not necessarily easily, but with conscious choice and understanding of our actions and reactions. I use a collaborative approach for older families, attempting to engage all family members in responsibility and unity.

Family therapy can be very powerful because it is typical that a family can live together and yet not really communicate openly about issues that are affecting everyone. This lack of communication is usually because of fear of upsetting one of the family members or there may be some topics which have become "taboo" and everyone knows this. At this point we are dealing with the proverbial pink elephant in the room. Family therapy helps to open up communication in a safe and loving manner. It can help everyone get clarity about the next step in a separation or divorce scenario and can help people express their feelings in a compassionate and accepting environment.
