Family Addiction Recovery Programs
Cumberland Heights recognizes addiction is a family disease and developed its family program to help educate and guide patients’ families as they navigate their way toward recovery.
In this four day workshop, our clinical staff educates loved ones of the patient on how chemical dependency 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
Families generally attend the program during the third week of a patient’s stay at Cumberland Heights. Family members will have interaction with the patient for about one third of the program’s schedule.
