How Station House Includes The Family In Treatment
Client Check-In Call
Our clients are strongly encouraged to call their families when they arrive at treatment to let them know that they made it safely. This puts the family members’ minds at ease.
The family will typically get a call from their loved one’s primary therapist within 48 hours to give them information on the client’s treatment plan and level of care.
The therapist will also gather valuable information from the family to help give their loved one the best treatment possible. The client’s medical, educational, and family history will be discussed as well as the client’s personality traits.
Local Support Resources
Families are given information on local support groups in their area like Al-Anon, Alateen, and Nar-Anon which will give them a lot of insight on how the disease of addiction affects families.
Every family member involved is strongly encouraged to write a letter to their loved one expressing how their lives were impacted by their addiction.
Whenever appropriate, family members may be included in therapy sessions either in person or via video conferencing if they are out of the area.
