The purpose of the first phone call is to learn about your loved one, the family system, and answer questions. It is important we identify how we can help move your loved one towards recovery. We also want to learn about your unique family system. Where is the power, who is enabling, who is helping and how do we get this group to come together for one common goal. We listen to how our experience and education can help shape the intervention to ensure the best outcome.
After we’ve determined our experience and expertise is a good match, we will send an agreement of engagement. Next, we will gather contact information and begin reaching out to potential team members. A family preparation packet will be sent out, and a general timeline for the process.
When families realize each individual member has a role to play in the process, they can begin to come together. In order for someone struggling with substance use disorder to change, family systems must change. This change begins with behavioral health education including: addiction, mental health, disordered eating. We develop a family map or a genogram to help families understand the relationship between behavioral health and family history.
Our emphasis on and attention to family recovery plays a pivotal role in helping the individual on the road to recovery. Our family-centered approach sets us apart from other providers and is a great factor in determining long-term success. Going to treatment, being successful in treatment and maintaining healthy relationships is paramount to a better future.
Typically, a session is 50 minutes. Depending on the size and situation for your family, we may go longer.
The frequency of our sessions is determined by our initial and ongoing assessment of your needs as well as your goals. To start, we usually meet once a week. The family recovery process is not only a group effort, it is a committed and practiced one. From week to week, we may meet with the entire family, smaller groups or individually based on our clinical assessment and collaborative input of your needs.
The format of our session can adapt to your availability – online, over the phone or in person (and distanced!). Whatever setting makes you most comfortable is where we want to be.
We begin with a 30 minute call/zoom to discuss your situation and history. To make real progress, we want to make sure we’re a good fit for you and your family.
