The Arbor Family Program
Family Program Dates
The Arbor Family Program is designed to address the needs of the family of the alcoholic/drug addict as they navigate the path to sobriety and healthy living. It is not uncommon for there to be a complete breakdown of communication between the suffering addict and their family. Our family program helps bridge this gap and get the entire family moving towards a healthy direction.
The Arbor Family Program is open to the public and an important part of our Continuum of Care. Participants are empowered with knowledge and hope for change. This is done by engaging the family into the treatment process from the beginning and providing support throughout their journey. Our staff offers supportive care through our family program week, telephone calls, individual family sessions, and referrals.
Our Family Program is a combination of educational and therapeutic modalities. It is a three and a half day intensive program offered monthly, and is ideal for family members, partners, and significant others affected by addiction. It is lead and directed by masters-level clinicians, and is an experiential program which includes equine assisted therapy, group interaction, individual sessions and other therapeutic activities.
Our addiction counselors provide education, support, and strategies to aid in realigning and healing the family. Participants participate in lectures and discussions, private counseling opportunities and experiential activities on The Arbor ranch property. Families are exposed to Al-Anon and 12-Step philosophies and programs. Our experience is that family recovery significantly increases the likelihood that your loved one will achieve long-term recovery.
