Every woman who comes to Rising Roads has a family history all her own. No family is perfect and every family has their own challenges. Upon your admittance we will get to know your current family, which may differ from your nuclear family. Our goal will be to include those who are most appropriate for providing ongoing support in your recovery. If there are people in your family of origin or family of choice that need to be assessed on whether they can provide the support you will need, we will do that.
Your addiction has likely permeated your family. There is likely hurt and pain running rampant. When a woman enters treatment there are often mixed emotions on her end as well as within the family, especially if those left behind are trying to clean up the wreckage. We will take all of this into consideration when creating your family work plan. Sometimes the family needs a break and doesn’t want to be involved. Although we understand the hesitation it is our belief that working as a family while the client is still in treatment is the best course of action and is often crucial for ongoing success.
