Boca Raton’s Preferred Family Program for Addiction & Co-Occurring Disorders

At Wellness Resource Center, we recognize the importance of family involvement when it comes to assisting individuals in successfully overcoming addictions and learning to manage symptoms of mental illness. For this reason, we are immensely proud to offer our Family Program. Our center’s standard family programming components include a bimonthly Family Program held at the facility, located in Boca Raton, FL, as well as regular phone / email updates from your loved one’s Primary Therapist. All families and friends are advised to attend Al-Anon meetings for additional support.

Distinctive Family Programming

Incorporating Structured Family Recovery™ into Programming

Knowing that addiction and mental health issues can take a toll on the entire family, the Family Program here at Wellness Resource Center is designed to provide a strong social support network and enhance meaningful relationships that will assist in promoting the recovery of our clients, while also healing their families. We have incorporated Structured Family Recovery™ into our program, which allows family and friends to be involved in the healing and recovery process at a deeper level. All of our clinicians have been trained in the theory behind Structured Family Recovery. Structured Family Recovery is an ancillary service with the first call being complimentary, either to help the family start their own process or the family may opt to add formal services, and subsequent calls will be billed to them accordingly. Family and friends may begin their own process under the direction of a specialty trained counselor, who will guide them through the action steps and strategies that will support their loved one through the first year of recovery. Our treatment center’s goal is to educate, support, and assist everyone involved as our clients strive to gain independence, self-fulfillment, and a sense of hope for the future.

During each client’s treatment at our center here in Boca Raton, FL, his or her primary therapist will be available by phone and email to update family members on their loved one’s progress and to provide family therapy sessions for the clients on an as-needed basis. If formal Structured Family Recovery has been selected as an ancillary service, family and/or friends will also take part in weekly meetings via conference call with a Structured Family Recovery™ counselor, lasting one hour, and following the 8-point plan for each meeting. By creating a recovery team, family members and friends learn how to support recovery, prevent relapse, and work through the challenges that arise in achieving sustained recovery. For families unable to add or uninterested in this ancillary service, they will receive support and coaching from their loved one’s Primary Therapist during this process. Those interested may also purchase the book “It Takes a Family, which will walk them through the Structured Family Recovery process!

Family Involvement During Treatment

The Importance of Family Members During the Recovery Process

Watch the video below to learn more about Debra Jay’s new book, It Takes a Family: A Cooperative Approach to Lasting Sobriety, in which she discuses lowering the relapse rate for alcoholics and addicts by creating a culture of recovery with family members and loved ones.


The Structured Family Recovery™ emphasizes:

Positive rewards and negative consequences
Frequent random drug testing
12 step involvement and abstinence expectation
Applicable role models and recovery mentors
Modified lifestyles
Active and sustained monitoring
Active management of relapse
Continuing care approach
The main component of our center’s Family Program is the psychoeducation that we provide for family members of our clients once every other month. This program is offered at no additional cost to our clients’ families because we do not want to be prohibit anyone’s ability to attend as a result of cost. In addition to the psychoeducation offered, during participation in the Family Program, families will also engage in process groups so that they can understand how their communication may be a barrier in their loved one’s recovery and in their ability to maintain sobriety. We also encourage family members to spend time focusing on their own needs, allowing themselves to be nurtured and guided towards healthier relationships with their loved ones.

We believe that our Family Program and its availability at a minimal additional cost to clients’ family members is one of the things that makes our treatment center stand out from other care providers in the Boca Raton, FL area. We are dedicated to not only caring for the needs of our clients, but for the needs of their family members as well.

My first time entering addiction rehab was scary. I didn't know what program or treatment I needed but I knew that I needed help. The way that Wellness uses a step-by-step approach to their treatment really helped me take back my power and overcome the addiction that was destroying my life and my family. I can't recommend Wellness' treatment program enough.
