Statistics show a greater rate of success when a family participates in the treatment and recovery process. The Council on Recovery provides ample opportunities for families to play a part in their loved one’s treatment, including within our residential programs at our Hicks Family Ranch in the Austin area.

The Family Experience program at The Council on Recovery’s Hicks Family Ranch is a three-and-a-half day intensive experience that helps family and friends to understand how a loved one’s addictions may have affected them, and understand how to take care of themselves and others.

This intensely educational experience has been developed for family and loved ones as a result of our experience with thousands of family members and evidence-based research on the relationship of family and recovering addicts. We believe that addressing the needs of family members and other loved ones is essential to their health and to that of the addicted individual as well.

Some topics discussed include:

  • Causes of addiction
  • Impact on families and loved ones
  • Self-care
  • Family systems and dynamics
  • Planning for the future

Family Experience is available for our residential clients dependent upon their program and clinical appropriateness. For more details, please contact us by calling 512.697.8675.

We promise to help you, your family, and your children get the help you need when dealing with substance abuse, addiction or a related issue.
