Family involvement is often an important part of the recovery process. When the residential phase of your treatment is over, it’s helpful to have a support system who will encourage your recovery once you return home.
At Mount Sinai Wellness Center, there are multiple opportunities for the family to be integrated into the treatment process. We have a structured family program that will help your family learn more about the struggles of addiction and what they can do to help you overcome it.
If you’d like to learn more about the Mount Sinai family program, call us at (800) 353-4673. Our addiction treatment center sees patients from all over the United States and Georgia.
Keeping Families in the Loop
At your request, we will keep family members updated on the status of your recovery. To help them feel more involved, we host family therapy sessions where all of you can meet and talk about the process. Family members will also be provided with resources for family support in their community, and educational resources to help them better understand the disease of addiction and recovery process.
When clinically appropriate, families are invited for family visitation. This visitation is offered twice per week, on Sundays and Wednesdays. Al-Anon meetings are provided on Sundays at 1pm, which family members are encouraged to attend if desired. There is also a therapist-led psychoeducational and support group held on Wednesdays at 6pm. These groups are strongly encouraged for family participation, as they offer support and healing through the recovery process.
Mount Sinai Wellness hosts a family day every 2nd Sunday of the month. During this day, families can learn more addiction and the recovery process. Our staff offers psychoeducational groups to families to help them understand more about the process. We also provide educational courses to teach them communication tools that will help establish healthy boundaries.
When families work together to help a patient overcome addiction, they can support each other through the good times and the bad. Recovery is a lifelong process, but it’s one that’s made much easier when people are looking out for you and ready to help during the more difficult moments.
