Family support for addiction recovery strengthens the healing process for all
To provide guidance and understanding to families of people who are in treatment and recovery at Mirmont Treatment Center in Media, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia—we offer free, family support for addiction recovery programming through an interactive mobile application as well as weekly, on-site educational services.
I thought that if my husband received help, that everything would be fine. Mirmont’s Family and Friends Program helped me see that we all need to be part of the recovery process.
Using these resources at the onset of your loved one’s treatment will help you navigate the inpatient treatment process and continue to support you throughout your loved one’s journey towards meaningful recovery.
Family program sessions are held every Saturday afternoon from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. We ask that you attend a minimum of one session in this five-part series before visiting your loved one at Mirmont. This program includes:
- Introduction to mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) for recovery
Stay connected with Mirmont and with families in recovery
You can download the Mirmont Treatment Center app for alumni and families free of charge in the Apple App Store or GooglePlay for Android devices. This mobile support community provides education, support and resources while connecting you with hundreds of families who are also on their own recovery journeys.
Through the app you can:
- Privately message our family support services team
- Post family support for addiction resources that have helped you
- Share triumphs over some of the challenges we’re all faced with in this addiction battle
Our team also schedules phone consultations with members of this community in order to help support you throughout your journey.
We recognize the challenges and struggles a family has experienced prior to inpatient admission: broken trust, incredible confusion, and overwhelming stress. Addiction is a family disease—it affects everyone, not just the person dealing with addiction.
While we are treating your loved one at the inpatient level, we encourage you to engage with our multi-faceted, family support for addiction recovery programming. Involvement in the treatment process not only strengthens the patient recovery experience, it helps initiate the healing process for the family.
