Welcome to Our Healing Springs Ranch Family Program

Watching a loved one who is lost in the addictive cycle is traumatic and life-altering. In order to effectively break this cycle, it is imperative that we not only look at healing the pain in our clients
– both past and present – but addressing the trauma accrued by the family and friends while living with them. Gaining sobriety, in and of itself, does not break the cycle of addiction. Only until the collective trauma endured by both the family AND the person struggling with addiction is addressed will the cycle truly is broken.

Healing Springs Ranch offers a one-of-a-kind family weekend Program that addresses each family’s unique needs. These intensives are held one weekend per month. Family members are encouraged to attend during their loved one’s treatment stay with us even after discharge if needed. Our family weekend program not only offers a comprehensive treatment overview but also provides emotional support and connections to other families who share the same struggle.

During the program, participants will become familiar with our Integrated Addiction Model which will provide everyone with a relatable understanding of addiction as well as a common language for healthier communication within the family system. Participants will also identify multi-generational emotional and behavioral patterns within their own family through a genogram activity. Each family will be involved in a personalized group/ family psychotherapeutic process facilitated by our clinical team
of experts

This two-day educational experience is Friday and Saturday morning from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm (Central time). It is offered through zoom format so that participants can attend from the convenience of their own homes.

Healing Family From Addiction

Recognizing this concept, allows us to truly understand the impact addiction has not only on an individual but also on his/her family and friends. Watching someone you care about who is lost in this cycle, is itself traumatic and life-altering. To effectively break this cycle, it is imperative that we not only look at healing the pain in our client — both past and present — but address the trauma accrued by the family and friends while living with him/her. Gaining sobriety, in and of itself, does not break the cycle of addiction. Only until the collective trauma endured by both the family AND the person struggling with addiction, will the cycle truly be broken. Our commitment goes beyond our client; we understand the importance of HEALING FAMILIES FROM THE INSIDE OUT™.

Our program offers a one-of-a-kind family weekend program that addresses each family’s unique needs. These programs are held each month, Friday and Saturday morning. You are encouraged to attend during your loved one’s treatment stay with us, but you may attend after he/she has been discharged if needed. Our family weekend not only offers a comprehensive program overview but also provides emotional support and connections to other families who share the same struggle.  During the intensive, you will become familiar with our Integrated Addiction Model which will provide you and your loved one with a relatable understanding of addiction as well as a common language for healthier communication within your family system.  You will also identify multi-generational emotional and behavioral patterns in your family through a genogram activity.  And finally, each family will be involved in a personalized group/family psychotherapeutic process with your loved one facilitated by our clinical team of experts.
