Family Treatment

Family Treatment

Addiction doesn’t just affect the person who is using drugs or alcohol; it is a family disease that impacts spouses, parents, children and extended family members. Studies show that family involvement in primary treatment improves long-term recovery outcomes and helps to restore the family system. That’s why Vista Taos Renewal Center provides comprehensive family programming to all of our residents and their loved ones.

Family Support Seminars

The family seminar at Vista Taos supports recovery by providing family members and significant others opportunities to gain awareness, insight, and healing through interactive and experiential sessions. Through active participation clients and their families and dynamics explore issues including:

  • Effective Communication
  • Healthy Boundaries
  • Enabling Behaviors
  • Forgiveness & Reconciliation

Family members are strongly encouraged to attend the three-day seminar to understand and experience how family dynamics influence addiction and the health of each family member.
