We know from years of heartbreaking direct observation as well as evidence-based research that families impacted by addiction have experienced pain and suffering themselves, and require support for themselves as well as for the recovering addict.
We know that families who participate in support for themselves are able to foster a better recovery environment for our clients returning home.
Our Family Program helps the families of our clients gain a better understanding of addiction and recovery, but also provides an important validation of the impact of the addiction on the whole family, and provides tools for families to begin their healing journey.
The program is facilitated by our highly trained counselling staff with the specific goal of helping clients’ families gain understanding as well as promoting healing and rebuilding of relationships.
We strongly encourage all those who are 19 years and older who have experienced the disease of addiction through a loved one to take this opportunity and join us for our 4-Day Intensive Family Support Weekends.
There is no additional fee for family members to participate in our family weekends.
Participation in our Family Program is by invitation, and an email will be sent to you formally inviting you to attend. Please also note that Family Intensive Program is not suitable for anyone under the age of 19 years old.
Our Family Program is offered approximately every six weeks, Wednesday through Saturday.
Clients and their families that were not able to attend during the client’s stay are welcome to attend over the next 6-month period following the client’s graduation from treatment.
Lunches are included daily, as well as breakfast on Saturday morning. Families will stay at a local hotel and drive themselves to the Ranch for programming during the days.
