At Northbound, we look to heal not only the victim of substance abuse, but also the family that is also suffering from the effects of seeing a loved one in the grip of addiction.
The Family Program at Northbound Treatment Services is a monthly program designed to help families repair relationships damaged by drug and alcohol abuse. The program incorporates group counseling, lectures and Al-Anon meetings over the course of four days, and is designed to help family members reconnect and understand the roots of addiction.
The family members of the alcoholic or addict often have difficulty dealing with a whole range of emotions, including feelings of helplessness, confusion and anger. The Northbound Family Program helps family members understand that they can’t control their loved one’s addiction, nor can they cure it.
The program is among the best available treatment options for families and is included in our comprehensive fee. Priority in the Northbound family program is reserved for those in our community who would most benefit from participation. To get the most help in repairing the family system, Northbound turns to therapists and addiction treatment experts outside our center in addition to our own clinicians.
The Northbound Family Program Addresses:
- Family Roles
- Medical Disease Model of Addiction
- Healthy Communication
- Family Recovery
Scott and Jenny Graham of Carefrontations lead the Family Support Groups portion of the program while nationally acclaimed addiction speaker Dr. Kevin McCauley leads a number of lectures covering the disease of addiction.
Our program provides:
- Healing time for families
- How to avoid being trapped by manipulation
- Focus on personal care
- Opportunity to meet with Case-Manager and Therapist
- Structured time with loved one in treatment
The Northbound Family Program is among the best available treatment options for families in this particular situation.
