Healing happens with connection and community. Our family system is the foundation for attachment styles, communication, and boundaries. For many of us, our family system is also where we experienced a lot of pain and dysfunction. There is hope for you and your family – you can overcome the past. Family therapy at APN offers the support, guidance, and education needed for healing the family system. Your family can reconnect and strengthen your bond … together.
We believe that family healing lays a foundation for long-term recovery. Start healing today.

HEALING TOGETHER WITH FAMILY THERAPY
When family members do their own work to grow and learn, the client in treatment benefits too. Clients who have strong family involvement in the process have a higher likelihood of sustained recovery. If a family no longer enables and learns to hold healthy boundaries, the client is less prone to addictive behaviors and dysfunction. All Points North offers a comprehensive and intensive family program for the loved ones of APN clients. Dedicated family therapists are available to meet weekly with clients and their loved ones via telehealth. Video therapy sessions for clients and families are included in the overall treatment cost during the client’s time in-person at APN Lodge and continuing after their transition home.
In family therapy, you’ll explore a variety of topics and themes, including:
- Communication Skills
- Navigating Finances
- Repairing Attachment
- Empowering Self-Care
- Rebuilding Trust
- Clinical Follow Through
- Establishing Boundaries
- Handling Today
BREAK GENERATIONAL TRAUMA & DYSFUNCTIONAL PATTERNS
Family therapy can break chains of generational hurt and help you create healthy boundaries rooted in love, trust, and respect. We offer family therapy services in conjunction with treatment at the Lodge; there is no additional cost for this service. We know that our clients have a higher likelihood of success when they have family support and participation.
APN will assign a therapist to work directly with your family, separate from individual therapy sessions. With weekly virtual meetings lasting no longer than 50 minutes, family therapy is easily accessible from anywhere in the world.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM FAMILY THERAPY
The goal of family therapy at APN is to elicit and analyze relational pattern functioning, assess for maladaptive functioning and behaviors, enhance the perception of accountability, create a therapeutic alliance, develop a positive motivational context, and provide psychoeducation to decrease the blame and shame around mental health issues, substance use disorders, and trauma.
Brief intensive family therapy has three stages focused on various aspects to heal the family dynamic:
- Stage 1: Join together, accommodate each other, challenge perceptions, create a relational focus, build a therapeutic alliance
- Stage 2: Challenge homeostasis, model skills, shape competencies with insight, increase the intensity, shift behavioral and cognitive patterns, realign relational patterns of functioning to healthier levels
- Stage 3: Highlight healthier relational patterns, shape competencies with insight, explore strengths and plan for maintenance
Family therapy at APN is rooted in evidence-based practices. We’ll find the strategies that work best for your family and set you up for success, even after your sessions end.START NOW
