We maintain open communication with every involved person who is willing and able to offer support to our clients. From children, to high-risk teens, to persons in recovery, we serve not only the client themselves, but also the people around them — their parents, siblings, children and family members.
The Family Association — a key component of our service — is open to the community and is a network of parents, spouses, guardians and other family members. The group meets weekly, providing a supportive venue where family members can learn new skills for dealing with the complex issues associated with addiction. Family Association is an especially critical component of our youth services, and for clients in these programs. Parental participation is mandatory.
We also provide support and counseling to co-dependents (people whose relationships with the substance abuser have prevented him or her from focusing on themselves), and for anyone who is impacted by living with a chemically dependent person.
