Family Programs

At New Life House we believe in family restoration. We invite your family to become a part of our family!

Substance abuse affects the whole family.

We believe recovery should too. That’s why at New Life House we incorporate the entire family into the recovery process. Every step of the way, we involve, engage and include our families. We believe that for your son to successfully recover, the process should be a partnership. In the beginning, all of our families can expect weekly update calls and discussions from staff on their son’s progress, struggles, and successes. New Life House is not a place where young men are dropped off and families are forgotten – it’s a home that involves everyone in the recovery process.

A true family support system.

When substance abuse stops, there is still a tremendous amount of repair that has to take place for the rest of the family to heal. We work with our parents to begin that process. During our biweekly family meetings and barbecues, there is a big focus on community support and learning new ways to address the family dynamic. New Life House works to help foster a whole new approach towards healthy family communication, boundaries, and integration.

We want to help you as well as your family.

A note about support groups for families of drug addicts.

12-Step programs like Al-Anon, Nar-Anon, and CODA (Co-dependents Anonymous) offer valuable drug addiction help for family members and loved ones of substance abusers. Accumulated evidence shows that alcoholics and addicts are more successful in their recovery and families are aided in reestablishing healthier relationships with them, when loved ones through participate in 12-Step programs. For this reason, the staff at the New Life House Recovery Community strongly urges family members to become involved in Al-Anon or a similar family of alcoholics support program. Click on any of the logos below to visit the respective group’s website and find a meeting near you. If you don’t find a meeting you like, try another one!
