Alina Lodge offers an extensive clinical program dedicated to supporting families throughout the recovery process. We encourage loved ones to take an active role in their own recovery. Our program is specifically designed to facilitate healing within the entire family system.
Our residential family therapy program is available to immediate family members over the age of 13. Participants are involved in a structured program which includes:
- Educational presentations concerning the disease of alcoholism;
- Support and understanding gained in small group discussion
- Individual conference time designed to address personal issues
- An introduction to Al-Anon family groups, which we recommend for continuing support
We strongly encourage loved-ones to participate in the family program. In our family therapy program, we provide support education for immediate family members during Sunday visits throughout the stay of your student.
