At The Next Door we recognize the vital need for families to receive their own treatment and recovery from the Disease of Addiction. In fulfilling this need, families are allowed their own place to learn, process, grow and heal.
Recovery offers many positive benefits for the family. When a member of the family suffers from addiction the whole family is affected. At The Next Door we encourage family members to actively participate in the treatment process and begin to establish their own recovery. Many times a family’s involvement begins before the client is admitted. Family members provide valuable information to our staff, including how addiction has impacted both the client and the family. With the family’s help we are able to develop a personalized treatment plan that respects the needs and desires of the entire family.
If clients wish to participate in any of the family services, the staff will contact family members to provide further information and instructions.
The Next Door offers Family Programming on the following topics: Disease of Addiction, Family Disease and Recovery, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES), The Science Behind Substance and Alcohol Disorders, Medically Assisted Treatment. Our staff utilizes various forms of educational and therapeutic resources to help support families. Family members are provided with educational information and materials.
Finally, The Next Door offers the opportunity for individual family sessions. These sessions allow clients and families to focus on identifying and individualizing treatment for their specific family system.
For more information, please contact The Next Door at (615) 251-8805.
Family Programming on Thursdays evenings
Family members are encouraged to participate in this family assessment group which allows families an opportunity to assess and learn how the disease of addiction has impacted their family units. Please note that these sessions are for the approved family members and loved ones only and clients will not be present during these sessions
Family Therapy Sessions
Clients and their family members can participate in individual family sessions via phone or in person. This allows clients and their family members to address specific issues and needs related to their situation. Therapists meet with clients within their first 24-48 hours of residential treatment to determine the need for individual family sessions. If a client wishes to participate, staff will contact family members to schedule an appointment.
