Family Recovery

Coaching

Many families never thought drugs would be an issue in their lives, but now they are—and they’re at a loss as to what to do, who to talk to or where to turn. Addiction is a family disease, and often times we become as sick as our loved one who is struggling with addiction.

A family recovery coach can help family members find peace and regain their lives.

What is a Family Recovery Coach?

  • Provides support and guidance to families who have a loved one struggling

  • Develops strategies to create positive change throughout the family dynamic

  • Assists to create a calm, non-judgmental environment

  • Helps family members establish healthy boundaries

  • Guides them to additional community resources

How does it work?

  • Our coaches can work with a single family member or the entire family.

  • Participants should be open to considering alternative methods of communication and behavioral actions. 

  • One-hour coaching sessions generally occur once or twice a week at an agreed upon time and place (up to 24 sessions). 

This is a free service. To request a family coach click here.
