Addiction affects not only the addicted person, but everyone around him or her.
Our family therapy program, called "Family Matters", is offered to provide an opportunity for the client and their family members to learn more about addiction and to begin the process of family healing. There are two parts to the Family Matters program:
The education section provides basic information about addiction, the impact of addiction on individual family members, and recovery for the family. Anyone important in the client’s life may attend this portion of the program held on Sundays from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. at North Bay Lodge.
Family therapy is done with the client and their selected family members. We encourage the client to invite the people who they will be living with or relying upon to support their long-term recovery, to participate in this part of the program. Family therapy is by appointment only on Sundays between 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. at North Bay Lodge.
