Family Program Director - Bruce Dechert M.ED, LADC, ICADC
The Family Wellness Program at Mountainside was designed to work concurrently with the client’s treatment. Having a family member in treatment can be difficult for all who are involved and can often cloud the ability to make the right decision when it comes to helping that family member while they are in treatment or after they leave treatment.
The Mountainside Family Wellness Program focuses on understanding the disease of drug and alcohol abuse and how it impacts everyone in a family, constructive problem resolution and continuing care for the whole family.
Participants in the Family Wellness Program at Mountainside will learn about various family dynamics and tools that they can use to build healthy family systems with someone in recovery from substance abuse. In addition, specific information regarding the family member in treatment is incorporated to ensure a lasting recovery for the client and healthy family dynamic.
One important Family Wellness Program component is the offsite Family Healing Strategies, where family members meet offsite and go through an intensive program designed to educate and give participants specific therapeutic tools to ensure the best outcomes. You can learn more about this by visiting Family Healing Strategies.
