Young adults in substance abuse treatment are met with unique challenges. These include landing a job, creating a schedule, returning to educational institutions and paying bills. Often due to struggles with addiction, young adults have not met these developmental milestones, straining both the young adult and his or her family. Real Recovery Clinical Services offers a treatment approach centered around helping young adults and their families move collectively toward a meaningful life, while encouraging progress through the developmental trajectory of young adulthood. Family therapy for addiction treatment is vital in helping families implement change, helpful in supporting the young adult facing addiction struggles, and the family unit as a whole.
A one-day event offered at no additional cost to participating families, the Family Program from Real Recovery Clinical Services offers free support and education to all attendants. The workshop provides an opportunity to meet staff, learn about addiction and recovery, identify and address communication roadblocks and make sense of behaviors, while supporting the family unit in cultivating self-compassion. We encourage family workshop attendance to supplement their loved one’s recovery.
