Family members are welcomed into treatment program participation, when appropriate. Your understanding of the goals and objectives set by our professional staff with your loved one and the skill development required to reach those goals are imperative to the continuing recovery once he/she has left our inpatient or outpatient treatment setting. Family education groups and family meetings facilitate more effective communication and help to build trust among family members.
