Family Program

Addiction is more than a singular, individual disease. The person addicted to drugs and alcohol is not the only person that needs support and guidance. The stability of families and households is impacted in ways that shake the overall family dynamics. Addictions can disrupt family life with harmful effects that can break loved ones apart. Because of this, Rocky Mountain Detox offers support and guidance through a professional family program during detox.

An effective family program during detox in Denver offers the family the chance to be active participants in their loved one’s recovery efforts. Family programs can begin after a client has gone through at least 60 days of in-house individual treatment. Once the knowledgeable, experienced team of therapy professionals approves, immediate family members will be invited into therapy sessions.

It is essential to wait until the client is ready to involve family members in their recovery. Family program sessions are often difficult for all parties in the room but can lead to real, significant healing for everyone who has been hurt. Frequently, it is ultimately responsible for bringing a family back together while providing a strong support system for a lifetime of sobriety.
