Recovery Family Involvement

Addiction affects everyone around you, but you’re not alone. Gay Men’s Institute believes including your chosen loved ones in your recovery process is key to success and sobriety after treatment. Our family program aims to create strong bonds so you have loved ones to support you once your journey outside of treatment begins.

Family Therapy

Your comprehensive treatment plan may include family therapy. If your loved ones would like to attend in person, they are welcomed and encouraged to participate. For those who can’t attend in person, therapy can be completed over the phone. We believe recovery family involvement is essential.

Family Education

The goal of our family weekend is to educate your family on the biology of addiction and their role in your recovery. You will spend time in sessions together to work on the core dynamics of the family during the weekend.

Family Contact & Visits

If you’re progressing well through treatment, we encourage family contact once a week by phone call (in the presence of your therapist). Family visitation will be arranged at the discretion of our treatment professionals.

If you have questions about how loved ones can help during treatment, please give us a call.
