Mountain Laurel Recovery Center (MLRC) understands that addiction is a family disease, and we work to support families through sharing knowledge and education for the entire family system. We educate families on many aspects of addiction including the framework of how to create healthy relationships in recovery.
Our goal is to help the individual and family build a strong support system based on healthy behaviors. We also provide a continuum of care through our extended care program. Individuals have an opportunity to create a strong individual program that allows them to gain a deeper understanding of healthy boundaries, core values, sober supports, the 12 steps, and emotional sobriety.
In our Family Program, families are encouraged to attend weekly educational and process groups with the addicted family member to better aid them in understanding the scope of the addiction and its impact on both the addict and the family system. Family members are also encouraged to attend family group sessions with other family program participants. In family groups, families learn healthy ways to express concerns, identify and address problems, communicate, and behave in a way that supports the recovery process. Families will also have an opportunity to establish healthy support systems with family members of other residents also receiving treatment for their respective addiction.
