We recognize the importance of including families in the recovery process. We believe that treatment can be so much more effective when we can keep family and loved ones involved in the process of recovery. As an effort to promote healing for everyone involved in the treatment process, we provide supportive family services, including weekly family groups and family therapy to clients. We believe that family members can also learn how they can provide crucial support to their loved ones while they are in treatment to help them avoid relapse and move forward in their recovery process. We educate families about the progression of the disease of substance abuse. Our treatment center helps pregnant substance - dependent women to achieve recovery from drugs and alcohol and learn to care for self and their children.

Dealing with a loved one who is challenged by addiction can be nearly all-consuming for a spouse, parent, sibling or friend. It's not uncommon to feel at a total loss for how to be helpful. There are proven alternatives to "tough love" and other intervention style ultimatums for helping a loved one. A combination of SMART Recovery program tools (based on cognitive therapy) and CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) can help individuals regain control and maintain communication with their loved one. Pls see this resource http://www.smartrecovery.org/resources/articlesessays.htm
