One of the main components of treating addiction systemically is treating the family systems. The Seasons Systemic Family Treatment Program actually approaches treating the entire family system while a patient is in primary care at our California drug treatment center.
Each weekend on our Malibu rehab campus from 11am until 5pm Saturday and Sunday, the Seasons staff conduct the most through and ongoing family treatment program in the country. Each Saturday there is a psycho educational group, a multi family process group, and an experiential family therapy group. Each Sunday there is a group on Family and Spiritual community, a psycho educational lecture and an experiential family group.
In addition to this offering, the Seasons In Malibu team saw the need to engage individual families with as much intensity as possible in a short period of time, working to and achieving a breakthrough result that allows the family to really change from a system of addiction into something more supportive while the inpatient client is still in residence.
The three day intensive program schedule fills up quickly and requires booking at the time of inpatient intake at most times.

As with the individuals in treatment, we believe families will benefit from treatment at least a year in length. Regular process therapy, ongoing Systemic Family Intervention, Relationship therapy and returns to the Seasons campus for days or weekends are all ways that families continue to participate in treatment throughout the year.
