What is the Family Program?
We know that the effects of alcoholism and drug addiction are not limited to the individual, and that the impact is far-reaching and often devastating. It’s often family and friends who have watched the disease progress and who do research to find help and treatment.
For the past 25 years, we have offered free family counseling to anyone who is seeking information about addiction or to support a loved one who is struggling with this disease. And, in 2016 alone, our Family Program provided services to more than 1,500 family members and friends. The support of loved ones is the single most effective way to help people in recovery stay sober.
Recovery is a process for both the woman and her support system. We offer free informational classes, facilitated group discussions and individual family sessions. These classes provide the opportunity to learn how to begin the healing process and move forward into recovery. Although the responsibility for her addiction ultimately lies with the addict; we believe that education and support are critical to the continuing recovery of the entire family.
