Due to COVID, the family program was dramatically impacted. Currently, your primary therapist will provide weekly contact with your family. Your counselor will work with you on the structure and purpose of these family calls in order to meet your treatment needs best. The team is working to develop a new family program that will provide education and support to families post-COVID. Your loved ones may access family educational videos on our website. If you have questions, please speak to your counselor.
Addiction is a Family Illness
The Farley Center at Williamsburg Place recognizes that addiction affects the entire family. We offer the Family Program to assist family members and patients cope with the consequences of addiction.
The Family Program provides an interactive learning experience by exploring the following topics:
- the disease of addiction
- how addiction affects families
- co-dependency and enabling
- resources for recovery
- continuing care
- skills for effective communication
