For Families

We all hurt when a loved one has concerns.

We understand it

It's hard to watch someone you love struggle with addiction, trauma, or mental health issues. It can be an emotional experience to watch someone you care about initiate treatment. And the time leading up to the decision to seek help is often accompanied by anxiety. At Reset we understand this and we work with families, including in the treatment process, so that healing can emerge for everyone involved.

If your loved one is struggling with an addiction or mental illness, Reset can help.

Recovery for the whole family

Reset experts have long had experience of helping families and the impact an addict's behavior has on the family. Our family program is dedicated to relationship healing. It is designed to provide a safe space for our Resetters and their loved ones to engage in open and honest communication as we explore family and relationship issues.

How the family program works

During the family program, family members and significant others at Reset are invited to actively participate in their loved one's recovery process. In the weeks leading up to this family day, clients discover that much of their current dysfunctional behavior stems from past trauma or difficult situations. We believe that the family has an important role to play in solving those problems. The family program offers clients and their families the opportunity to understand their family of origin and current family systems and begin the recovery process together.

The group setting - including family, clients and our family coach - provides an open and honest reflection of the patterns of behavior that have contributed to a client's unhealthy lifestyle. The client and their families learn how to better communicate, support each other emotionally and establish appropriate boundaries. This cooperation promotes the recovery process and brings the family closer together. It has also been proven to be an important factor in long-term recovery.
