Running Head: Family Systems Therapy Adlerian Family Therapy Chandra S. McCray Mississippi College Background Information Family systems therapy is based on the concept that individuals are best understood through evaluating the entire family.

If you are struggling with alcoholism and drug addiction, your disease also affects everyone around you, especially your family. Families function as a system. Think of this system like the parts of a computer. Various parts work together to allow a user to type, scroll down, view images, and listen to sounds. If one part is malfunctioning, the entire system goes down. For example, if the monitor were to stop working, the user would be unable to see any websites or programs on the computer.
