At Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center, we believe it is vital to provide support to the family and loved ones of our clients who struggle with addiction and mental illness. Blue Ridge is one of the few programs in Georgia offering a family program that is provided at no additional cost to family members and loved ones of clients that are currently in our residential treatment program.
We know how crucial the support of family and loved ones is, so we wish to help those closest to the individuals we treat. We encourage family visitations as they afford family members the opportunity to see the progress their loved one has made in his or her recovery journey. We provide family sessions throughout each client’s stay as deemed appropriate by his or her therapist.
Every three weeks, we also offer family and loved ones the opportunity to participate in our family workshop. This two-day long piece of our family program provides the opportunity for family members to learn more about mental illness, addiction, and recovery. We work to improve communication skills in the family dynamic so that each member feels heard and understood. We will also explore the roles loved ones have played in the addiction and discuss necessary behavioral changes.
Our goal is for everyone to gain insight into the disease process and how it impacts the entire family unit. Through our program, our primary goal is to help each family member become more knowledgeable about chemical dependency, addiction, and mental illness. We encourage an open dialog among each family unit in our safe, moderated environment. We will also connect loved ones with available community resources such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous to allow the continued healing and recovery for all family members.
We understand the challenges of loving someone who has an addiction or mental illness and our caring staff is ready to help.
