Family Involvement

Addiction is a disease that affects the entire family. Promises New Jersey alcohol and drug rehab is dedicated to helping you and your loved ones recover from the pain of addiction and learn how to best support and care for one another. In addition to regular updates and weekly family therapy via phone or in person we offer a unique family session as detailed below. Call 844-299-7326 to learn more.

Family Session

Our family sessions can take place in one of three ways:

  1. Group Session

    Family sessions are ideally held within a group setting with your peers. This format allows feedback from the treatment community and provides you with a high level of support. In this setting, your family is encouraged to express how your addiction has affected them and you’re able to tell your family how addiction has also impacted you. The family session does not aim to “air dirty laundry” or delve deep into family secrets or issues. The goal is to talk about expectations and setting boundaries for the relationship with you and your family moving forward after treatment.

    After the session is over, the other clients provide feedback to you and your family. Many times, the clients who have been chosen to observe the family session are able to see an issue you are dealing with come into play within your family dynamic. In this way, your peers can give valuable insight, providing support to you and also helping themselves through the process.

  2. Psychodrama Session

    If your family is unable to or prefers not to attend the family group session, we will conduct a “mock” family session wherein other clients will act as your family members and engage in a role-play group therapy session. This approach works just as the regular family group session but with actors (peers) as your family members.

  3. Teleconference Session

    If your family or loved ones cannot physically attend but would like to participate in a family session, we can communicate via teleconference. This can take place with other clients in a group setting or with just you and your individual therapist.

Day Visitation Pass

Upon completion of the family session, your family can take you out on a day pass the following day (if clinically appropriate). This allows for quality time together and offers opportunities to put into practice what was learned in therapy. Speak Confidentially with a Promises New Jersey Recovery Advisor at 844-299-7326

Regular Updates

Your individual therapist will call your loved ones once a week to provide updates on your care and answer any questions. Families/support systems are also able to contact your therapist at any time throughout treatment. Following a seven-day adjustment period, you can call loved ones daily as clinically appropriate.

Family Therapy

As clinically approppriate, you’ll participate in weekly family therapy sessions via phone or in person with your loved ones.

Aftercare Planning

Aftercare planning is a collaborative process between the clinical team and you and your loved ones. While you’re in treatment, we work with your family or support system to ensure you have a recovery-friendly living situation when you transition back into everyday life. We can make arrangements for you to live in a sober-living residence if this is appropriate. We will also provide you with numerous aftercare resources.
