Ongoing multi-family therapy groups are not often seen in treatment programs, despite the family being a critical element for individuals in early recovery. We will discuss the three integral parts of a multi-family therapy program: more curative power, additional avenues for learning with less resistance, and therapist ease and economy; these factors work together to enhance the therapeutic effectiveness of the group. We will review the four key components that should be utilized at the start of a multi-family group. Specific interventions for working with families will be discussed along with the benefits of multi-family therapy. We will review techniques and answer questions about working with parents, spouses, siblings, children and close friends. Boundaries and resources will also be discussed.
