Family Weekend Program

Addiction is not a spectator sport,  we say “everyone gets to play”. Unfortunately family members are held hostage by addiction and often feel helpless and hopeless. The goal of our family program is to provide a safe space for the family to learn and share; leaving the weekend feeling, hopeful about their future. The Family Program at Beachway consists of a full clinical day to assist patients and their families in gaining education about addiction and the importance of family support.

The family program enables the family members to have a voice through an experiential exercise with mediation and support from the clinical team. The clinical team will address issues related to: support vs. enabling, the importance of al anon and family therapy, the criteria of addiction as a disease and how the family plays a parallel role, Q&A, the importance of boundaries, as well as providing a clear understanding of the aftercare recommendations for each patient.
