The Still Waters Family Program
The Family Program encourages family members and loved ones to further explore how their lives have been personally affected by the disease of addiction. Through monthly family phone meetings and weekly visitations, Still Waters provides a safe place for conversations the healing process for families and loved ones, while helping them get started on their own journey of recovery using the 12-Steps of Al-Anon.
During our Family Care Program, our clinical staff educates loved ones of residents how addiction affects the entire family. The Family Program’s foremost goal is for each member to heal, which begins with the understanding of addiction as a disease. Families begin to see addictive behavior not as a personal or moral condition, but as the symptom of an illness, often beyond one’s control.
We show families how to rebuild vital pieces of their relationships, including trust, boundaries, and communication utilizing experiential and therapeutic group exercise. Clinical staff will also explore family dynamics and addiction in an effort to identify how to rebuild trust, create healthy boundaries, and use safe, clear communication.
