Family Integration In The Treatment Process
Using family education, we provide a way for family members to become knowledgeable, comfortable and accepting of the recovery process. At the same time, we support honest communication between and among them about what has occurred over time. We – and the client — teach them how to take care of themselves when relapse signs occur, and how to stop enabling. We help couples to replace unhealthy communication patterns with more intimacy, trust, and spontaneity.
We realize the important role that the family plays in an individual’s recovery. The family can be a critical component of an client’s support group. At NewBridge we offer resources to educate and involve the family in recovery. For clients in our Intensive Outpatient Program and our Day Treatment Program (PHP), family members are encouraged to take advantage of all our services.
