Involvement is key for long-time recovery
Our treatment philosophy is based on the belief that addiction affects the entire family and that the patient is actually the family system as a whole.
The majority of clients in our Outpatient Treatment Program come from family environments that have been negatively impacted by substance abuse and related behaviors. Research indicates that treatment outcomes improve if one or more family members are formally engaged in the recovery process.
The Pathways Family Program has been designed to create opportunities for family members to participate in that process. It provides the knowledge, coping mechanisms and support they need to meet the challenges that substance abuse brings to the family environment as well as developing an ongoing care plan for the family.
Our program provides:
- initial assessment
- family mediation
- individual and group therapy
- development of healthy communication skills
- tools to build cooperation and trust
- resources for ongoing support
