Our clients often have the most success after treatment when they have a support system. Often, family is a strong support pillar. We know the toll addiction can take on familial relationships. Our goal is to help heal strained relationships so that a sense of support is strengthened.
The importance of family involvement for those whose loved ones are receiving addiction treatment at Pocono Mountain Recovery Center in Henryville, PA
Addiction has a tremendous impact on those who love or are involved with the addicted person. We feel strongly that loves ones pay an integral role in the recovery process. Upon admission, residents will be assigned to a Clinical Treatment Team. This team will consist of a Primary Counselor, and a Case Manager. Our Executive Director, Clinical Director, Medical Director, Nursing Team and Clinical Psychologist. and Family Program Director will participate as part of each team. These professionals will guide residents through the entire program to make for a productive treatment experience. A member of this Treatment Team will contact loved ones with updates on the resident’s progress. The Family Program staff will also be in contact with the loved ones to help construct a compatible recovery approach addressing the concerns of the family.
Through our Family Program, loved ones will have the opportunity to build knowledge and understanding of the disease of addiction and the process of recovery. Loved ones will explore topics such as “addiction as a family disease”, “behaviors of early recovery” and “supporting vs. enabling” over the course of the program. Personalized to meet the needs of our PMRC community, the Family Program seeks to restore some health to the family relationships
