Our Programs

Family Programs

At Pathways, we believe that family involvement is an integral part of the recovery process. Our treatment programs—inpatient and outpatient, adult and adolescent—include a family component.

Inpatient Individual Family Sessions

Once during a patient’s stay at Pathways, patients and their family members will come together for an individual family session to discuss next steps in the patient’s recovery. Patients share with their family members their plan for next steps in their recovery journey. Family members learn new ways to support their loved ones in this process.  Additional sessions may be scheduled as appropriate and as it relates to the patient’s treatment planning.

Weekly Education Sessions for Families of Adult Patients

Family members are invited to learn more about addiction and recovery. Topics include family communication, stress management, enabling and codependency issues relating to co-occurring disorders, and much more. This program is open to any and all family members ages 18 and older and are held Sunday afternoons for 1 and 1/2 hours.

Weekly Education Sessions for Families of Teen Patients

Immediate family members of all Pathways adolescent patients are invited to learn more about addiction and recovery. Topics include family communication, stress management, enabling and codependency, and much more. After the session, patients may join their family members for a 30-minute visitation. Only immediate family is permitted. Sessions are held Sunday afternoons for 1 and 1/2 hours.

Family Wellness Workshops

Pathways hosts an open, therapeutic and educational program for any family members of adults or teens struggling with drug use, alcohol use, and those struggling with a combination of substance use and mental health problems.
