Substance Treatment Family Programs

Start Your Recovery Journey Today

The decision to seek treatment is a big step, but you don’t have to do it alone.

Substance use can take a toll on entire families—not just the individual struggling with addiction. From damaged trust to job loss and trouble with finances, the impacts can be felt in many different aspects of your life. The good news is that there are substance use treatment programs available that can help heal the whole family.

At Calvary Healing Center, we offer a holistic approach to addiction treatment that includes a focus on the family. Our substance use treatment programs are designed to help the entire family heal from addiction and build a foundation for a healthy, sober future.

Currently, we offer family engagement through the patient’s assigned therapist and treatment team with family sessions as identified on the patient’s treatment plan. We hope to rebuild and expand our family programming and will update you when we add services.

An Overview of Our Substance Use Treatment Family Programs

Loved ones are invited to attend our family program during the residential and partial hospitalization levels of care. Our family program emphasizes two key components: education for the family and processing recovery issues.

Why these two components? Because addiction is a family disease—it doesn’t just affect the individual struggling with addiction, it affects everyone in the family. And families need to be equipped with the tools to deal with addiction and its aftermath. Supporting loved ones in their recovery journey is crucial to long-term success.

What to Expect in Our Family Substance Use Treatment Program

Some of the focuses of our family program include:

  • Determining how you will and will not be involved with your patient’s new life in recovery
  • Creating boundaries that keep you safe from addictive behavior and patients safe from unskillful family involvement
  • Establishing effective communication and reducing fear
  • Making a plan for the future
  • Processing recovery issues using honesty, compassion, tolerance, and understanding

Building trust and re-establishing relationships is a process that takes time. But our substance use treatment programs are designed to help families heal and move forward together.

Family Education and Support Group

This group meets every Thursday evening from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. We also meet from noon to 1:30 pm on Sundays. The meeting is online on Zoom. We are only able to accommodate families of current patients and families of Calvary alumni. When we meet in person again, we can invite the general public back.

Our Sunday program involves alternating four-hour modules each Saturday.

The first module is geared toward providing education, while the second focuses on processing recovery issues. The education module includes information about:

  • What addiction is – Understanding the disease of addiction
  • Addictive personalities – Identifying the characteristics of an addictive personality
  • 12-step meetings – Learning about 12-step meetings and their role in recovery
  • Sponsorships – Understanding the importance of sponsorships in recovery
  • Transitional living – Learning about transitional living options and sober-living homes

As family members move on to processing, patients join their loved ones to discuss anger and emotional coping, share honesty letters, explore re-entry options, and talk about family agreements. These topics can be difficult to discuss, but our substance use treatment programs are designed to help families heal and move forward together. Since addiction is a family disease, it’s important that families have the opportunity to process these topics in a supportive environment.
