At The Next Door we recognize that the disease of addiction affects more than just the individual seeking treatment. Families need to receive their own treatment and recovery from the disease of addiction, so The Next Door provides a space where family members are allowed their own place to learn, process, grow, and heal.
Our staff utilizes various forms of educational and therapeutic resources to help support families. Family members are provided with educational information and materials so that they can be a healthy support for their loved one in the recovery process.
Family Education Group
Family members are encouraged to participate in this family education group which allows;
- Families to learn about the disease of addiction, family recovery, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), and medication assisted treatment;
- families to learn how the disease of addiction has impacted their family units, and;
- family members to learn how to become a healthy, positive support for their loved one in recovery.
Please note that these sessions are for the approved family members and loved ones only. Clients will not be present during these sessions nor will there be family visitation time before or after the session.
Family Therapy Sessions
Clients and their family members can participate in individual family therapy sessions in person or via phone, as advised by client’s therapist. This allows clients and their family members to address issues and needs related to their specific situation. Therapists meet with clients within their first 24-48 hours of residential treatment to determine a client’s desire or need for an individual family session. If a client wishes to participate, staff will contact family members to schedule an appointment.
If you are a family member interested in more information, please call us at 615-251-8805.
