What is Family Consultation?
CanAm Interventions Services offers Family Consulting, Case Management and Aftercare Services for families and their loved ones that has been proven for a high rate of recovery success.
Patti's beliefs about working with families as interventionist, addiction specialist and family consultant comes from her own research and from helping many families recover. What is often heard from families that sent their loved one to treatment is this: “Our loved one did so well in treatment – he conformed to all levels of primary, secondary and outpatient treatment. They were so solid. I don’t understand what happened. He was the model recovering person in treatment while he was getting treated for addiction/behavior issues. Then he relapsed as soon as he was not in a confined environment with someone telling them what to do.” The next part of the story goes like this: “This is the fifth time he been in treatment and as soon as he completed the treatment program, he relapsed.”
Patti's work with families includes preparing families, embracing the pain within a family system which is mostly grief, loss, and fear. The focus is to have family members empathizing with each other in relationships which creates and fosters change. Using family education, and systemic therapy approach, instead of focusing on individuals and/or isolated behaviors, it is best to treat the core family problem as a whole. The aim of family systemic education/therapy and using recovery tools adaptations is to work on these problems by encouraging family members and their loved ones to build on family strengths and ultimately make useful changes in their lives and relationships. Families coming together and learning to work together, leads to new opportunities to obtain resources and appreciate the needs for emotional wellness of each member within the family unit.

Who can benefit from Family Consultation?
How long is Family Consultation?
Family Consultation can be available for 3 months, up to 5 years. The statistics show that it takes 90 days of recovery treatment to change old behaviors and two years of consistent recovery to change old ways of thinking.
Engaging families in an exploration of strengths, values, and goals helps to build mutual trust and respect between them. This, in turn, often leads to more successful outcomes. This relationship can be built upon when problems arise. In the presence of open communication, families and helpers can work together to identify the informal and formal supports that can reduce or eliminate the factors causing harm or risk.
