Family Education and Drug Counseling Program

Alcohol and Drug addiction are conditions that affect not only the addict or alcoholic but also the family as a whole. Treating all components of the system are necessary for successful recovery of both the addict and the family from a seemingly hopeless state of operation. Research indicates that family involvement in substance abuse treatment is crucial for healthy recovery. In order to provide support, information, and resources, Support Systems Homes has developed a Family Education Program to meet the needs of those who have been impacted by another person's alcohol or drug problem.

The Family Program

The goal of the Support Systems drug and alcohol education program for families is to introduce participants to the principles of recovery along with providing necessary social and emotional support. The educational component of the Family Program assists the client and family members in understanding the complicated web of addiction and its impact on the family as a whole. Family Group meets on Saturdays at our Treatment Centers.

Family members of clients who are participating in Detox, Residential, Day, and Outpatient Treatment programs are welcome to attend this program.

Services include:

  • Educational/recovery support group sessions facilitated by professional counseling staff
  • Educating clients in the condition process, ensuring they develop an understanding of addiction
  • Teaching the psychological, medical, and spiritual affects of addiction to the individual and his/her family
  • Referral to a vast network of community resources
  • Introduction to 12 step and Alanon recovery principles and the recovery community

Support Systems Homes is a participant in various major health insurance plans and will work with special needs cases on the basis of availability. To find out more contact us today, toll free nationwide @ (800) 811-1800.
