Admissions For Families
What may seem like taking a small, necessary step in the right direction for an addict’s friends, family, and loved ones, is really not so simple for those afflicted by their mental health or substance abuse issues. That small step for us can seem like a big leap into the abyss for our loved ones. We know that taking that first step is not only crucial, it’s scary, hard, even overwhelming for some. That’s why at Chiron, our staff members are highly trained, caring individuals who are committed to helping your loved one take that step.
With the help and support of you and our staff, your loved one can not only take that step but run full force into dedicated, long-term recovery. Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves here, though. Once your loved one chooses to seek treatment, there are many decisions that won’t be made lightly, it’ll be a long road ahead of them. In the beginning, when you are reviewing programs and facilities that are dedicated to drug or alcohol rehabilitation, the amount of information can be overwhelming.
Once you’ve narrowed down your search, you’re suddenly hit with many more decisions, questions, and concerns. Fortunately, you’ve done the hardest part. Finding a treatment center with the right program for your loved one can be daunting, but you’ve done it, and you’re here.
Next, you’ll be wondering about all the details, what type of insurance will be accepted, will you be able to afford treatment otherwise, whether or not there are payment plans. Of course, this information is important, that’s why we’ve gathered it all here for your convenience. You’ll also find information about what items need to be packed and what items should be left at home. We’ll give you some more information about what goes on during rehab as well as what your loved one might expect from treatment – and what you can do to support them along the way.
Involving Family Can Do Wonders for Recovery
We at Chiron Recovery know from experience what the support of loved ones can do for recovery, that’s why we celebrate and encourage family involvement. Whether you are able to attend our family program or not, we like to give you as many resources as possible. The first step in becoming the type of support your loved one needs is education.
There will be a chance to learn what enabling is, if and how you’re doing it, and how to stop doing it while remaining there for your loved one. We understand being the friends or family members of an addict presents unique challenges to you, and we’re committed to your recovery as well as your loved one’s.
We Encourage Friends and Family to Join a Recovery Program
Although we would love to give you all of the information you need here, we know there is too much to learn along the way.
