Encouraging Family Participation
At Starlite, family members of loved ones in treatment have the unique opportunity to attend a 2-day family program, which includes a combination of education, family and multi-family group process, and skill-building.
To provide the best opportunity for change, we strongly encourage family members and/or significant others participate in this unique rehab program. During the Family Program, our staff of dedicated professionals provides family members with education on the disease of addiction as well as the necessary tools to heal and grow.
Clients and their family members engage in the following education sessions:
