Units - Departments: Family Support Center
 

The Family Support Center addresses the matter of substance abuse as a symptom concerning not only the user, but the entire family system.

International research as well as KETHEA's experience have shown that, regardless of the family's potential role in the creation and maintenance of the addiction, its participation in the therapeutic process can enhance the effectiveness of the therapeutic intervention.


The Family Support Center provides information, counselling and support to interested parents, siblings and spouses / partners, regardless of whether the addicted individual has joined a therapeutic programme or not.

The main goals are the provision of information regarding substance abuse and addiction, understanding the family's decisive role in the positive outcome of the therapy effort, personal development of the participants through therapy groups and smoothing out any dysfunctions in the family system.

Therefore, the aim is to support parents in motivating their children to join a therapeutic programme, and to train them in creating an environment that will enable the addicted member of the family to abstain from substances.

Supported parents and other participants have the opportunity, if they want, to join self-help groups. Through these groups, they have the opportunity to create, collaborate and contribute to the operation of space of the Center, which for a long period of time will be experienced as theirs.

Family programmes last approximately as long as the therapy of the addicted family member in rehabilitation programme.
