Recovery from addiction is a family process.
CeDAR’s Family Program provides education and support for any family member who has a loved one struggling with substance abuse. Addiction is a disease that is destructive to your entire family. It can rob each individual of their identity, create dysfunctional behaviors and damage relationships. Family members often blame themselves or try to control an addict’s behavior. CeDAR’s week-long program helps your family learn about addiction and recovery for themselves.

Anyone, 13 years old and up, can participate in Family Week, whether or not they have a loved one at CeDAR.
For those in a CeDAR Residential Treatment program, the cost for one Family Week participant is included in the residential fee. Contact CeDAR Family Services for additional participant fees. There is financial aid available for those strongly motivated to attend. CeDAR Family Week is also open to the public.
CeDAR Family Week is offered twice a month, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. CeDAR family educators will contact family members to orient them to family week procedures and schedules. In addition, weekly family support meetings are provided at CeDAR every Thursday evening. Referrals for ongoing individual therapy, couples therapy, and family therapy may be offered upon request.
Weekly family contact is initiated by the CeDAR treatment team. Please note, Federal Confidentiality Law requires that patients give permission in writing to allow the treatment team to communicate with family members.
