Family Therapy Weekend Program

Loving someone that is struggling with mental health issues is hard. The entire family system is affected by the loved one’s maladaptive behaviors and in response the family often suffers from confusion, frustration, guilt, shame, and a lack of understanding about what is happening to themselves and their loved one. See below the many components that compromise Family Therapy Programs at the Family Center for Recovery in Lantana, FL

Our Family Weekends are very important for our patients and their families, but due to the COVID-19 restrictions and safety concerns,we have altered how this program currently works. We are looking forward to being able to get back to having our full in person family weekends once it is safe for everyone to attend. Below is a description of how our Family Weekends are currently being held and we also explain how our in person Family Weekends work so you can understand what they are all about and why they are so important.

Virtual Family Weekend: Friday September 9th & September 10th 2022

Dear Parents and Family Members,

At this time due to COVID-19, we are unable to hold in-person family weekends. However, every few months we will be holding a virtual family education event to help families learn more about our programs and feel that sense of connection that is so important. Our next event is scheduled for September 9th & 10th, 2022.

To find out more information about the event, please contact our Family Services Coordinator, Haley Gerard, at 561-329-6601 or 

What platform will be used?

We will be using the Zoom platform to deliver our presentation. The process will be laid out for you and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email Haley at

We look forward to seeing you soon!

In Person Family Weekend Program

Family Weekend is an intense, experiential and educational time of immersion over a three day period. Held every 8-10 weeks, family weekends give you the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of mental health conditions and our treatment model. You will attend educational sessions presented by Dr. Moran and our therapeutic team, participate in community meetings, be introduced to support group options, enjoy excellent food and fellowship and spend time with your loved ones if therapeutically appropriate.

Our Treatment Facility

When a patient enters our treatment facility, they receive a psychiatric evaluation, biopsychosocial assessment, cognitive testing, and numerous scales to determine what their immediate needs are. Once we get a grasp on the conditions our patients are experiencing, our psychiatrist and clinical team can then determine the appropriate level of care and treatment plan. It is important to note that our medical and clinical team see the patients daily while at the higher levels of care such as detox, residential and PHP. This allows us to be fully in-tune with all behaviors and thought processes that our patients experience, day-in and day-out. This is of critical importance when treating any psychiatric illness, whether it be depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, borderline personality disorder or even a substance use disorder.

Family Center for Recovery is licensed by the Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA). This means that we treat primary mental health disorders, with or without substance use disorder present. We, unlike many other programs, actually get to the underlying diagnoses that are disabling our patients’ daily lives. Here at FCFR, we pride ourselves on getting the right diagnoses, the right medications and creating the right treatment plan. Our highly trained medical and clinical staff allows us to accomplish this better than anyone else in the industry.

You and your loved one deserve to be treated by a psychiatrist and a highly trained clinical team. Please ensure that when looking into any program, that the decisions will always be made by medical staff, and that the program has the appropriate mental health licensure to ensure diagnoses are not missed. FCFR’s model of treatment is used to continue propelling the treatment industry forward in the right direction.
