Family Workshop

Research shows family involvement in a loved one's treatment increases chances for a successful outcome.

The Family Workshop offers education and support for those who have a friend or family member in treatment. The workshop is for family members and the loved one struggling with addiction and can be scheduled in coordination with the primary counselor.

Workshop Topics:

  • Addiction as a disease
  • Enabling
  • How to support recovery
  • The importance of talking about feelings
  • What to expect when the initial phase of treatment ends
  • How to access ongoing support for themselves 
  • How to appropriately be involved in the treatment and recovery process 

Workshop Times:

  • Twice a month, we offer a 4-hour Family Workshop on Tuesdays, which are typically offered at the following times:.

    • 12:30-4:30 p.m.
    • 5-9 p.m.
  • Families are encouraged to talk with their family member and their primary counselor to schedule. This setting will have other families present as well.
  • Additionally, a private family session with the client's primary counselor is encouraged. Family session appointments can be scheduled by communicating directly with the primary counselor.

Attend the Family Workshop and Make a Difference

Your loved one's participation in a group session with you and your family members provides an opportunity to practice new, healthier communication skills in a safe setting. In our exit surveys, 100 percent of family members say the Family Workshop was worth it.
