Drug and alcohol addiction has long been known to be a family disease yet most all treatment programs focus on the individual with the "problem"....the "identified patient". The family gets very little, if any, care or help to achieve "family recovery".
We are fortunate to have Roland Williams, MA, NCAC II, CADC II, LAADC, ARCPS, SAP facilitate Reflections "Family Program" which occurs once a month on a Tuesday and Wendesday.
It makes no difference how big or small the family is, where the members are located, whether the family plan to take part in the family program or not, or even whether the family and client are on speaking terms. The evaluation, preferably conducted at time of admission, helps to enhance the quality of family rehab service we provide. The family program is held several weeks after client admission.
