Patients are not the only ones affected by addiction. Drug and alcohol addiction hurts patients and their families. That's why family rehab and support is needed. A person's addiction gets worse as time goes on. Its effects may damage or change a family. PaRC's rehab treatment center helps patients and families.
"I want to express my appreciation for all the family classes I attended. The 3-day Family Program was informative and real. PaRC has world-class programs. All of the PaRC team members I have met in the past month have been very knowledgeable. They were helpful and super nice. It is good to know PaRC is there when I need them. Thanks to all the PaRC staff." ~Edsel D., Nov 2011
Cause, Control, Cure
In PaRC's family rehab, families learn three major things. They did not cause the addiction. They can't control it. They can't cure it. Families learn about all the contributing factors that lead to addiction. They also get counseling. We help families cope. We teach them how to protect themselves from the effects of addiction. And we show them how to support their loved one's recovery.
Our Family Rehab Program includes:
- Family Orientation.You will attend this orientation once. The group is led by a family counselor. It will help you understand what family rehab support is available to you at PaRC. You will learn what to expect from patients and staff. A question-and-answer session is held at the end.
- Family Education.This is free for one year. This is a four-week series led by a PaRC counselor. It includes education and meetings on many topics. You will learn about addiction and the 12 steps. You will increase communication. Codependency, enabling and boundaries will be covered. Discussions on family roles, adult children of alcoholics and recovery will take place.
- Family Rehab Parent Groups.This is a 12-week series. Groups are a safe environment for parents to talk about being the parent of someone with addiction.
- Family Process Groups.These are free for one year. Groups are led by licensed counselors. Family members address feelings, concerns, struggles and triumphs.
- Family Aftercare Program.This is free for one year. The program is available to patients' families. Attendance begins while the patient is in treatment and continues for one year after discharge. Groups are led by trained aftercare facilitators. They encourage and teach families how to strengthen their recovery tools.
- Al-Anon meetings. Al-Anon is a 12-step program for anyone who has been affected by someone else's addiction. Meetings help loved ones create a more peaceful lifestyle. See other 12 Step meetings on PaRC's campus.
