It Takes a Family improves treatment outcomes by creating a recovery team that will support the patient after treatment. The recovery team is made up of family members and friends who work under the guidance of a specially trained counselor.
The Structured Family Recovery (SFR) curriculum is delivered through weekly, one-hour conference calls, which eliminates the need for office visits. The calls feature education, discussion, and planning, helping the family team create a supportive environment.
In a few short weeks, SFR reduces the chance of relapse and creates a reliable framework for success. The patient joins the SFR calls on week four, often while they are still in treatment. The Twelve Steps are at the heart of every meeting, helping family members lead the way into durable recovery.
It Takes a Family provides an entire year of SFR meetings and curriculum, including how to develop a recovery plan and how to develop a relapse plan.
