Family Services


Few families ever expect to have their child admitted to a residential treatment facility; this is a non-normative event that impacts the family system in a multitude of ways.  It is our goal to work with families in combined efforts to reduce risk, increase safety, and improve the quality of the parent child relationship while (when appropriate) reintegrating into the family system and community in which they came.  Research supports family involvement as a protective factor that contributes to increased positive outcomes such as successful completion of treatment, improved interpersonal relationships, increased life skills and engaging in healthy habits.  Services provided at our facility include, but are not limited to:

  • Family visiting time weekly (Sundays 1-3pm, or upon request)
  • Family skyping (when physical visits are not possible)
