Family and Friends

Family and Friends Support Groups and Resources at Kolmac

Kolmac Integrated Behavioral Health Centers views addiction as a disease that affects not only the individual, but also those close to them. As part of our treatment program, we offer the family and friends of our patients an opportunity to learn more about the disease and get the support they need by attending weekly family and friends support groups separate from the patients.

A look at the family and friends support groups

Participants in the family and friends support groups may be anyone important to the patient: husband, wife, father, mother, sister, brother, other relatives, boyfriends, girlfriends and any other special friends. Persons in the family group can share their stress, questions, frustrations, progress, and setbacks. Members offer their support and experiences to help others in the group. The topics of discussion are up to each individual. No one is forced to speak if they do not wish to, nor pushed to disclose anything that is too uncomfortable for them to discuss.

We urge each patient to have at least one person come to the family group as often as possible.  For young adults, Kolmac Integrated Behavioral Health Centers mandates a parent to attend Family Group.  A young adult is defined as a person between the ages of 19 and 25 who lives at home.  We have found that both patients and their families have a better recovery with everyone talking and learning about substance use disorders and how drastically it affects one’s environment.
