Here at Corner Canyon Health Center we understand how important family is. Family is vital for a client’s progress and success. If you or a loved one is struggling and you think our family healing process is right for you, contact us today!
If a family member of yours is struggling, the best thing that you can do for them is to remain supportive. If you wish to engage in the Family Healing Process at Corner Canyon do not hesitate to contact us to help your family members make positive changes in their life. During the family healing process you want to encourage self-care and be patient.
Our healing process has several key services that each is encouraged to partake in. The first is the family assessment to understand the family dynamics and gather more information about the client. The second service is family therapy, this step involves the entire family plus a therapist.
The third service is a family group via go-to-meeting. For that particular service, we at Corner Canyon Health Center offer one night a week support and education for loved ones.
Another part of our family healing process is communication. Families are taught assertive communication skills that help each other listen to each other and improve their relationships. Our therapists are trained and experienced in family systems therapy and have a strong focus in aiding the client and family.
Corner Canyon believes that families are an integral part of a client’s process and progress. An integral part in the family healing process is the family assessment. During this process, appropriate family members, generally the family of origin and/or current loved ones, will be contacted by the client’s therapist within the first 3-4 days of a client admitting into Corner Canyon.
Our family counseling center will then assess the family dynamics and obtain information that the family has to offer. Due to federal regulations and the right to confidentiality, Corner Canyon is only able to contact family members that the client permits us to contact. Our goal during the family healing process is to aid the client and family in creating a blueprint for improved relationships and assistance with recovery for all members.
During the family healing process, we will have family therapy sessions during family weekends. There are also family therapy calls with a therapist that take place between family weekends. Both family sessions and family calls can be arranged outside of family weekends through the client’s primary therapist. These sessions and calls must also be authorized by the client through a signed release of information.
Family sessions and family calls are designed to facilitate resolution of past issues, look at family systems and problems, and establish new healthy interaction patterns in order to support the client in recovery and relapse prevention.
Here at Corner Canyon Health Center we provide support and education for loved ones. This support and education can be found on Go-To-Meeting one night a week.
Family communication is a key element in the family healing process. To promote better communication between family and the client, phone passes are given after clients have settled in. Phone passes are generally given to clients after one week, but this time period varies. Our phone passes can be used to call family and other appropriate contacts. The phone passes are contingent upon each client’s personal work, which is reflective of their own internal motivation and desire to change. Our team teaches families Assertive Communication skills, which they practice while at Corner Canyon Health Center. Through these skills they are able to listen to each other, express their needs assertively and improve their relationships.
Our Corner Canyon Therapists are trained and experienced in Family Systems Theory and Therapy, and in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. These types of therapies have a strong focus on aiding families during the family healing process and preparing the family to support the positive changes that the client makes during treatment. The “puzzle piece” the client represents changes shape while in treatment, and the family needs to adapt in order for the whole puzzle to work in a healthier and happier way upon reunification.
Family weekends occur every three weeks, or as needed, at Corner Canyon’s family counseling center and are designed to facilitate psychoeducation, family therapy, and reconnection with family members. Topics may include but are not limited to, neurochemistry to understand the effects of drugs and alcohol on the brain and the process of addiction, family systems work, art therapy, psychodrama, communication skills, and other psychoeducational topics.
The schedule is 9-5 Friday, with Saturday passes for family visits available. Passes for family visits are dependent on what phase the client has achieved and their personal accomplishments of treatment assignments in addition to clinical recommendations. We encourage family visits and family therapy, we believe that improvement in relationships aids in the recovery process and establishes a good foundation for the client’s return to the family system.
