Re-integrating back into a family is one of the most important stages of the recovery process. Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches recognizes that addiction is a disease in which the whole family suffers, and from which the whole family can heal. We offer a weekend family program to help families learn more about their role in the recovery of their loved one, while repairing their relationships in the process.

The Family Weekend Program

Families Take an Active Role in their Loved One’s Recovery: Our Family Weekend Program is a 3-day program for up to three family members to participate in free of charge. Days are cumulative in content and activity, so it’s important that family members are able to attend for all 3 days. The family program ends with a meeting between the patient, their loved one and their loved one’s primary therapist. Patients will only attend an hour each day due to their very full treatment schedules.

Family Program Overview

  • Addiction education, where participants join other family groups and learn about their role in their loved one’s recovery.
  • Participants learn how their behavior has affected their loved one’s addiction and how the latter has impacted their lives. This also includes an introduction to Alcoholics Anonymous and an exploration of the family dynamic. Families are given a homework assignment to complete the next day.
  • Families learn how anger affects their lives and how their past has contributed to their handling of their loved one’s addiction.
  • Through a series of exercises, families continue their healing by releasing their emotions. This gives family members the opportunity to practice the process of letting go. They also start establishing healthy communication and boundaries.
  • Coping skills and self-care. It is difficult to distinguish between caring for someone and codependent enabling. By Friday, the participants have a thorough understanding of this concept. The Family program includes a private session with their loved one and the primary therapist.
