Family Therapy and Education
Family involvement begins the moment a Client considers treatment at RSCT. RSCT will orient family members on what to expect and offer support groups and treatment for the family. Family Group Counseling and Education sessions offer family members the opportunity to gain increased understanding of unhealthy relationship patterns in order to begin the family recovery process. Family members and significant others are provided basic education re Alcoholism/Substance Abuse as a disease and are encouraged to attend AL-ANON and/or their own therapy if indicated. Work/Legal/School Conferences are scheduled as needed and would be an opportunity to facilitate communication between all necessary parties and stakeholders in a Client’s recovery.
