Family Issues & The Holiday Season

Tuesday, 18 December 2012 20:43 

The holiday season is typically full of opportunities for family gatherings and reunions, which can be difficult for women with mental health or substance abuse issues. Women facing these issues may have deeply rooted family problems that have impacted their mental health, or their family dynamics may have suffered due to their illness. Brookhaven Retreat recognizes this common problem, and for the women in its treatment facilities, offers a range of therapies and techniques that help rebuild family connections and smooth over this sometimes difficult time.

Often, the entire family is affected when one member suffers from a mood disorder. In winter, when extended family gathers for the holidays, women may come into contact with many broken relationships, and, without having received treatment, may not know how to effectively handle these situations. The family, too, requires support, education and therapy in order to help their family member and stabilize any relationships that may have been harmed.

Helping women resolve family issues such as trauma, abuse or enabling behaviors allows them to come to terms with their emotional issues and move on with their lives in health and happiness. Various therapeutic modalities and coping techniques allow women to once again participate in the holiday season with joy and mindfulness rather than pain and anxiety.

Success in recovery is best supported by the interest and involvement of loved ones. By mending the psychological issues that may have divided family members, women experience more success in recovery and are more easily able to navigate family gatherings with calm confidence rather than with anxiety.
