Recovery Begins at Meridian Health Services

Our Family Program

At Meridian Health Services, we understand addiction and recovery. We have a long track record of success-fully treating substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders.
Substance use disorders are complex, lifelong conditions that affect not just people in recovery but their families as well. To give a person struggling with alcohol and drug addiction the greatest chance at lasting, successful recovery, families often need to be included in treatment and services.
In our family program, family members will have an opportunity to discuss their
experiences and struggles in dealing with a loved one who has a substance use disorder. Our family counseling can help families facing substance use disorders in many ways, including by teaching them to better understand how their interactions and behaviors may contribute to a family member's substance misuse and learning how to adapt behaviors to support a family member's recovery.
Family-based interventions are centered on helping families learn how to change their behaviors toward and interactions with one another, how they can be a positive influence on recovery, and how to prevent substance misuse in future generations.

Through our Family Treatment Program, family members will:

  • Develop a support network
  • Learn coping
  • Learn self-care
  • Learn other resources
  • Learn the difference between enabling and supporting
