Riverside Clinic Family Program
At Riverside Clinic we treat both the individual suffering from addiction and the loved ones whose lives have been profoundly impacted.
We believe that family inclusive practice is crucial to our client’s recovery and self-actualization. We aim to educate and empower families through our Riverside Clinic Family Program in order to assist our clients and their families to pursue an unimpaired and meaningful life.
Families affected by addiction carry a heavy burden. Problematic alcohol and drug use can significantly strain relationships, increase social isolation and undermine the families’ physical, emotional and financial security. Research clearly shows that involving family in the rehabilitative process significantly improves long term outcomes for the individual.
Riverside Clinic Family Program includes:
Riverside Clinic Family Consultations
A confidential family consultation is provided as part of our treatment programs in order to engage the family in the treatment process.
Our Family Coordinator will be there to support you on the journey your loved one has undertaken, providing family consultations, general support and facilitating our Riverside Clinic Family Education Program.
Riverside Clinic Family Education Program
Our Family Education Program provides valuable information to families about the treatment process, the cycle of addiction and post treatment reintegration.
Families receive professional support as well as opportunities to interact with other families experiencing similar issues.The program aims to inform, educate, encourage and inspire family members. Our focus is the cultivation of a new approach to your relationship with yourself and with your loved one in ongoing treatment from addiction.
