BIOLOGICAL FAMILY. CHOSEN FAMILY. CLOSE FRIENDS.
We all come from somewhere. We want to know where you started so we can help you get to where you want to go. We also want to include anyone close to you in the treatment process. If you want them there, we want them there. Evidence shows that when family, friends, and spouses participate, outcomes improve.
If you’re seeking treatment for yourself, we encourage you to invite the people in your immediate support network to learn about and understand the recovery process, so they can better support you while you’re at Beacon House, and they’re ready to help you manage your recovery when you begin the next phase of your journey.
If you’re seeking treatment for a family member, friend, or loved one, we invite you to learn, grow, and change along with them. The changes they make during treatment have a greater chance of lasting if the people in their immediate support network make changes, too. The changes may be major, or they may be minor, depending on your circumstances. However, your willingness to change – in whatever degree – in order to support your loved one increases their chance of sustained recovery. It’s also a concrete way of committing to your positive role in their lives. Simply showing up for them during their time of need can change everything.
