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 patient — 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 patient’s support group. At NewBridge Recovery Center we offer resources to educate and involve the family in recovery. For patients in our Intensive Outpatient Program and our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), family members are encouraged to take advantage of all our services.
