Addiction impacts the whole family as a system, not just the person struggling with the condition. Providing unconditional love and support for your loved one during these difficult times can be overwhelming and highly stressful. At Mountainside, we believe in supporting family members and loved ones, as we understand your selfless effort to help save your loved ones come at a cost.

The Illness to Wellness workshop will teach families how the condition of addiction can impact functions and dysfunctions of the family system. During this time, we will review Virginia Satir’s perspectives on family wellness in terms of communication within the family system, and the 4 types of helpful and unhelpful communication styles that influence the transition between illness and wellness.

Our virtual Family Wellness Workshops are one of our many efforts to directly provide support for the families at no cost. It is a monthly series of workshops that will provide space for the family members to safely ask questions, share, and learn about some of the most pivotal aspects of recovery and addiction treatments.

The workshop series is offered two times a month from 5 – 6 pm throughout the year. The topics for the workshops range from the Neurobiology of Addiction to Healing Relationships. There are no commitments involved for the series; you may choose to do it all or attend the workshop that fits your needs the most.

After each workshop, Mountainside has a virtual support group available at 6:30 PM (Eastern Time) for you to attend in conjunction with the workshop to help create a supportive environment for you and build a network of shared experiences.
