We understand that addiction and mental illness not only affects the individual, but the entire SYSTEM – family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and even your pets!!! This is exactly why we complete an intake with your family members or significant loved ones. They want to see you succeed, but also need the right balance of Accountability, Boundaries, and Love (ABL skills) to support you now and across your journey ahead.
Following the family/friends intake, we will invite you to work directly with our mental health (MH)/ substance use (SU) licensed providers each week at designated group nights. In these groups you will learn about the addiction cycle and how alcohol and drugs impact mental illness and vice versa, as well as the specific dynamics (e.g., hero, scapegoat, etc.) you may have modeled.
In addition, we will provide you with the specific tools you can use to help your loved ones reach their recovery, improve their quality of life, and maintain their therapeutic gains over. Our family and friends program is designed to help you rebuild the trust and respect with one another, as well as use the right ABL skills while your loved one over time.
