Symbolic Family Therapy

Experiential Family Therapy

At Renaissance Ranch Ogden, our philosophy to addiction recovery is to involve the family and help the family unit as a whole. We recognize the family unit as eternal and powerful, for we know we cannot endure this life and embrace serenity and joy to the fullest without connecting and unifying as families and communities. We aim to bring the addict and the family together to rediscover the truth behind what family relationships are all about. Our goal is to not just treat the addict, but to help the whole family come together in a way they never thought possible. We want you to find true happiness and peace in your new life, and these relationships are a big part of that. If one family member is suffering from alcohol addiction, drug addiction, or prescription drug abuse -  experiential family therapy can be very beneficial. Each family is unique, therefore, each approach to family involvement in recovery is tailored to each situation. There is no additional cost for the Family Program. Renaissance Ranch Program includes weekly educational classes, group therapy, and intro to effective 12-step family support programs in our community. We offer assessments as well. Our custom solution is tailored to the individual and his or her own treatment plan. Call 385-222-3737 today to meet with our trained therapeutic staff and get started on the road to recovery.

Symbolic Family Addiction Therapy

Addiction destroys the family unit just as much as it destroys the addicts. Living with an addict is no doubt exhausting but also heart-wrenching. Most family members are unaware how to support the user and avoid getting sucked into the addict’s universe. The most significant segment of symbolic family therapy is the framing of the family unit as an essential part of the recovery process. It pinpoints specific challenges in the family unit and we help families set goals to overcome these obstacles. The aim of family addiction therapy is to resolve these problems by providing an open, equal and non-threatening forum where each member is given an opportunity to be heard. Our Renaissance Ranch Ogden is a place of discovery, healing, and forgiveness for the whole family.
