From the very first contact, family members of prospective Alpha 180 students are supported in their own journey of healing as they launch their loved ones in young adulthood and recovery. Many parents have spent years mitigating the damage of addiction while attempting to control their loved one’s life and keep them safe. Our clinicians take the time to guide parents while rebuilding trust in their sons as they safely navigate early recovery.
During weekly phone calls or in-person sessions, our therapists focus attention on teaching communication and self-care skills to help parents shift focus from the addiction to their own healing. We provide the day-to-day needs of our clients, which gives family members the freedom to focus on enjoying the relationship with their loved one. When challenges arise, therapists are available to help navigate them safely and effectively.
Furthermore, all Alpha 180 students and their families participate in a quarterly Family Weekend. While therapy and psycho-education are inter-woven in this experience, Family Weekend is about experiencing the miracle of recovery firsthand and enjoying time with one-another. Because all of our students share commonality in age and background, family members create an instant bond with the other parents. The Family Weekend is an important opportunity to step out of the fear and distrust of addiction and step into the miracle of healing that recovery has afforded.
Choosing aftercare programs can be overwhelming. Alpha 180 is a state-licensed facility and we carry the Joint Commission Gold Seal, considered the highest standard in our industry. We want you to feel very comfortable and are ready to answer your questions. If we aren’t the right fit, we’d be glad to help you find the right program for your family.
