Helping families help their loved ones to recovery
The Role of the Family in Treatment Programs
Family ties need to be strengthened, not shattered. Sprout Health Group firmly believes that there is no better support system than an individual’s own family and friends. With their untiring support in the individual’s treatment and recovery efforts, families and friends can do so much in increasing the level of motivation of the individual to make good in their treatment program. Families and friends provide the fuel that drives the individual to become successful in the accomplishment of their treatment goals.
The support of families and friends will continue long after the client has completed their treatment program. This is necessary in order to prevent relapses to maintain an emotionally supportive environment for the individual. This helps reinforce the adaptive thoughts and behaviors acquired during the treatment program. A strongly supportive family and social network is critical to the individual’s lifelong recovery.
Strengthening the Family through Psychoeducation
Sprout Health Group recognizes the fact that not all families understand what it takes to support their loved ones undergoing treatment. They need to be equipped with the right competencies to help them help their loved ones. This is where Sprout Health Group’s Family Program comes in. Helping families to understand the different issues confronting their loved ones including the best ways to manage and resolve these issues. We strongly encourage families, with the consent of clients, to participate in psychoeducation programs where they can get to learn about any or all of the following:

Helping the Family through Therapy
Even these may not be enough to help the client’s family care better for their loved one. As such, Sprout Health Group also provides Family Therapy which counsels the family on how to improve their relationships a lot better including improved communication and the ability to resolve conflicts between and among family members. Family Therapy is an invaluable program for families of individuals who are being treated for addictions, mental illness, or co-occurring conditions as they get to express their thoughts and feelings in a non-hostile and non-threatening venue. Our resident Family Psychologist can provide helpful feedback on how the family can develop better and more adaptive coping mechanisms as they go through their intense feelings.
Helping the Client and their Families
Sprout Health Group also recognizes the importance of having the client meet their family during treatment. Our monthly 2-day Intensive Family Program allows clients and their respective families to get together and strengthen or heal the bonds of the family through workshops, education, support groups, and therapeutic modalities. During the Intensive Family Program, everyone gets to learn everything they can about substance use disorders, mental health issues, and co-occurring conditions including how these conditions affect the family as a whole. The Intensive Family Program aims to provide clients and their families with all the resources they will ever need to help ensure successful treatment and recovery.
Family Support Beyond Treatment
Sprout Health Group provides clients and their loved ones all the support they will ever need even after completion of the treatment program. Our Family Alumni Services help make sure that families will always have someone to turn to in the event that they are having difficulties coping with the post-treatment life of their loved ones. Our Alumni Services are composed of social support groups, events, activities, and workshops that are all designed to help individuals and the families maintain strong and healthy family ties. This is essential in ensuring optimum recovery for individuals.
