The Recovery Academy Parent Program is a unique and vital part of the program.
Adolescent substance use/abuse and emotional problems affect the entire family. While adolescents are in treatment, parents participate in multi-family, and family therapy.
A significant benefit to the Parent Program is the ability to meet other parents. Parents often feel alone or personally responsible for their adolescent’s substance abuse and emotional problems. Participation in the Parent Program allows parents to better understand substance abuse and psychiatric issues and allows them to develop a support system by getting to know other parents with similar problems.
