Families in Focus
The diseases of eating disorders and/or substance use disorders are difficult for the individual suffering, but also the entire family or support system. At Focus, we strive to extend healing to all those impacted by the disease, not just the individual in our care.
Family Involvement is Vital to the Recovery Process.
Families in Focus is an educational program for the families of the adult patients in treatment. Our goal is to educate and empower each family member so that they may be a positive source of support for their recovering loved one while also taking care of their own personal needs.
The Families in Focus programs include; Co-Occurring Focus Family Night, held weekly and Eating Disorder Focus Family Day, held monthly. Both programs are designed to offer educational opportunities around setting healthy boundaries and assertive communication. This is done through a series of interventions facilitated by our caring and professional staff designed to help our patients and their families gain awareness about any unhealthy behaviors, find strategies to change those behaviors identify their strengths, and promote healthy growth.
