Sovereign Health understands the devastating impact of mental health disorders, substance abuse and co-occurring conditions on individuals and their families. As an effort to promote healing for everyone involved in the treatment process, Sovereign Health provides supportive family services — including weekly family groups, family therapy and an intensive family program — to patients and their family members while their loved ones are in treatment for mental illness, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders at our intensive family program.
These family services offered at Sovereign Health provide patients and their families with education, psychotherapy, resources and support they can use to repair or strengthen their broken relationships to provide full family recovery. Family members can also learn how they can provide crucial support to their loved ones while they are in treatment to help them avoid relapse and continue forward in their recovery.
The presence and participation of family members in treatment is important, as it provides patients with great emotional and motivational support during rehabilitation and greatly reduces the risk of relapse after they have completed their program. As such, Sovereign Health integrates the family into all aspects of the treatment process with the patient’s consent. As such, family members may be engaged in all aspects of treatment, including pre-admissions, admissions, discharge and recovery management. Families are encouraged to participate in our family groups, family therapy and the two-day intensive family program while their loved ones are in treatment at Sovereign Health.
