Before we have any contact with family members and proceed with family services, the resident in our care must first give us permission to contact them by signing a release of information. From that point, our family counselor will meet with the family to assess their needs for ongoing support. Within the first 2 weeks, families are encouraged to complete the family questionnaire, begin working in the family workbook, and start attending Al-Anon meetings in their area.
Family Support Sessions
Within the first 30 days, and after we have received the completed family packet, our counselor will call to schedule the first zoom or in person session. These sessions are to provide support, counseling, and education to family members.
Our intensive two-day family workshops are offered every 8 weeks and loved ones are encouraged to attend. When the time is deemed appropriate, approved family members will be sent an invitation to the workshop. In preparation for this day, families are required to have attended at least 6 Al-Anon meetings and are actively working with our family counselor.
