The family is the basic foundation of a person’s life. Solutions Outpatient Services’ Family Program provides services to the client and family which are designed to repair, heal, and revitalize the family. Because chemical dependency and other addictions are family illnesses, the disease affects the family and concerned people. There is no doubt that the one who is emotionally involved with a chemically dependent or codependent person will become affected in one way or another, to one degree or another.

As the disease of chemical dependency runs its course over the months and years, the personality and behavior of the chemically dependent person changes. Those who are emotionally involved with the chemically dependent person change in their personality and behaviors also in an effort to continue the relationship.

The GOAL of our family program is to educate the family members about the disease, and help them discover to what extent they have been affected. We endeavor to give them some tools for living, which will allow them the emotional freedom to achieve their goals in life.

Family participants attend up to two hours of lectures and four hours of multi-family group sessions weekly to help them identify their roles in their families and process their feelings. Solutions Outpatient Services’ Family Program includes an Intensive Family Weekend Workshop. This weekend includes approximately 15 hours—two hours of lecture and the remaining hours for list work, forgiveness, and reconciliation.
