Support for Families

Substance abuse and eating disorders affect families in a multitude of nuanced ways. When you or someone you love is affected, the family as a whole is affected. Feelings of anger, resentment, fear, or guilt are all valid emotions surrounding , but they can put a major strain on family dynamics. That’s why our team at Focus offers programming and resources for the families of our patients, because your well being matters too.

Stronger Families, Lasting Recovery

Research shows that family involvement during and after treatment is critical to long-term recovery, which is why we've designed a program to support you, beginning the moment your loved one enters our doors. Through guidance and education, we want to help you understand the role you have in recovery, while also addressing the feelings of hurt and frustration that come with these circumstances. Ultimately, we want you to know that while this road ahead may seem long and rocky, you do not have to travel it alone.

Join Us

We work to provide encouragement and education while creating a sense of community for our eating disorder families. Our goal is to empower patients and their families as they continue their recovery journeys at home. To promote connection and healing, we offer weekly family therapy either virtually or in person with appointments scheduled through the patient’s therapist. We also host a virtual family day event every month to help patients and families stay connected.
Our Family Night meetings are held on Thursdays from 6 to 7pm, and we’d love to have you join us. Our program goals are designed to educate while offering continued support. Topics and exercises we’ll delve into include:
  • The nature of addiction cycles and what happens in the brain
  • Interactive and supportive group processes
  • Appropriate boundaries
  • Common enabling behaviors
  • Healthy communication skills
  • Continuing care plans
