There are many components to our Family Programs. 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. Family Center’s Teen Treatment Program is here to help you every step of the way.
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. Learn more about Family Weekend.
GroupMe is an app, available on computer and phone, specially designed for 24/7 connection. Similar to Facebook, (without the faces), once invited to participate in this closed group you have access to a continuing stream of posts by other family members. Questions and answers flow freely as family members relate, support and share information about their own experiences. Often members develop strong supportive relationships with those they have a lot in common with and wonderful friendships are forged.
Weekly Conference Calls are held every Tuesday evening, led by a master level therapist, these calls are an opportunity for family members to address topics of interest and share in the benefit of real time information and guidance.
Family Center for Recovery knows you, the family, are instrumental in the success of your loved one. Participation in our group meetings is a key component of the program coupled with individual family sessions when therapeutically appropriate. As your loved one starts getting healthy, it is crucial the family is getting healthy as well. As we move through treatment together, we can slowly re-introduce you and your loved one back in to each other’s lives in a healthy way.
