Family Program

Family Services at Clean Recovery Centers

The disease of addiction has significant physical, emotional and social consequences for the individual seeking treatment and for family and significant others impacted by the disease.

We view family as an essential component of a patient’s ongoing recovery program and seek to involve family members in the addiction treatment and recovery process.

Support & Education

The mission of Clean Recovery’s Family Services is to provide clients and their families with support and education about the disease of addiction, the recovery process and the impact on the family.

Our program is designed to assess your family’s needs, educate you about addiction and offer ongoing family support during and/or after the client’s substance abuse treatment.

Our family therapy is based on the following concepts:

  • The absence of alcohol or other drugs doesn’t mend lives or families. Recovery is much more than sobriety – it involves how the families live their lives together.
  • Treating just the addict, without treating all involved in the addict’s life, will likely perpetuate the addiction cycle and not be beneficial in the long run.
  • Changes in one family member will affect both the family structure and each individual involved.

What the loved ones will quickly learn:

  • Knowledge about the disease of addiction and the effects on the brain and body
  • How to help rather than hinder the addict’s recovery
  • Conflict resolution strategies
  • How to re-establish communication and honesty in your relationships
  • Trust and forgiveness

Please Join Us

Family and loved ones are invited to attend the Family Program every other Friday from 1pm to 3pm after the client has been stabilized at Clean Recovery, which typically takes two weeks.

During these sessions, the family and client will meet with a group of fellow peers and their family members. This will include an educational component and an opportunity to apply what you’ve learned to your family’s situation.

Family will also be invited to ask questions, express any concerns, and share their experience, strength and hope with peers and other families. Individual family therapy sessions may be scheduled thereafter.
