Family support throughout treatment


Even though your loved one enters treatment, you may still be frightened about what happens next, and how to behave during and after treatment.  To address these issues we provide the CRAFT program once a week, by phone or in person, for family members. The CRAFT program is an evidence based approach that helps family members improve their own lives, and teaches them how to deal with their loved one in a manner that either helps motivate the loved one into treatment, or supports continued recovery upon discharge.

 

CRAFT was developed by Robert J. Meyers, Ph.D., at the University of New Mexico:

If you are able to do so, we encourage your regular attendance in sessions with your loved one at Reunion San Diego. Families from out of town often visit for several days or more, to take advantage of this opportunity. We can also include you by phone. These sessions are specific to your family situation and not generic “education” sessions. Before family sessions can be helpful your loved one may need several days or more to adjust to the rehab environment, particularly if detox is involved.
