Family Class is our family-centered online learning program that helps each family member find a recovery Change Plan that sticks. The heart of the work is our weekly hour-long session that brings the team together for sacred time to explore and experience a new freedom.
Family Class blends information with inspiration to help participants make life-affirming, healthy relationship decisions and works to discover how:
- Old tapes (“Battleground Beliefs”) influence lives today
- Explore the Family Map and how generational patterns play out today
- Making home safe has a set of principles that are non-negotiable
Connected by a fierce love, but not fused, Family Class supports a family unit fostering great capacity for honesty and forgiveness, while releasing old blame, shame and guilt.
Family Class gathers together family (of origin or choice) so the voices that matter to the group can participate in this change-infused program. This group education covers topics supporting families in moving past the shame and blame of addiction into healing properties of love and hope where each family member develops a task list to have MORE GOOD – LESS BAD in life.
Participants may join by phone or computer. If you join by their by phone it will be a conference call experience, and if joining by tablet, laptop or other digital device you will have a more involved audio + video experience.
Families joining your session have a loved one who is attending, or who has recently discharged from Breathe. During your session you will have the opportunity to personalize the information and learn how to apply it to yourself and your family. We focus on how to reintegrate your loved one back into the family in a healthy manner.
The curriculum equips you with skills on lowering stress levels and establishing new healthier ways of being. In combination with Breathe’s five-day Family Workshop, we help families learn to work together in new mutually supportive and loving ways.
You will receive information at the time of admission, as well as from your loved one’s primary therapist within the first week at Breathe, which will include information on joining weekly Family Class sessions. You may also contact our Admissions Team for more information: 800-929-5904
