Addiction takes its toll on the whole family. It ruins not only the lives of those we love but becomes an insidious thread that can tear apart even the most loving of families. Family members that are otherwise competent and confident individuals find themselves defeated, confused, and at the end of their rope when facing the addiction of a loved one.
At Casa Colina, we believe that family members deserve just as much support as the client in treatment. That’s why we’ve created an all-inclusive family services program that includes weekly updates, monthly visitation, and an intensive family program workshop where the whole family can find healing and direction.
We believe that the family is an important part of the treatment team. You knew your loved one long before us and will be there to support them long after they complete treatment. Weekly updates and coaching ensure that you always know what is happening with your loved one’s treatment and are getting the best guidance on how to support them.
Family visitation is often the bright spot of our client’s month: giving them a chance not only to receive encouragement and support from their family but also providing a time to try out new communication skills, practice new coping mechanisms, and put new relational skills to the test.
The hallmark of our family services is the Family Intensive Workshop. This three-day workshop is a time where you and your loved one will experience an intense and interactive environment that addresses family dynamics and the effects of your loved one’s addiction. The intimate environment facilitates therapeutic breakthroughs and profound healing for all members of the family. Led by our seasoned masters-level therapists, your family will embark upon a journey of discovery that just may provide the missing piece for your loved one’s recovery.

After a long period of sobriety, when I thought all was well, my son’s life began to unravel . As a result of a near death experience, he agreed to enter Casa Colina Treatment to begin the long journey of recovery. The 90 program focusing on the 12 Steps of AA, as well as the healing of the the mind and body, not just detox, has been a godsend to our family. The family program was a great touchstone to see how he was doing and how much potential he has.. Learning more about why the addict behaves the way he does and exercises with the other families and their addicts, is helping to build a better mother/son relationship going forward. My son left Casa for a sober living house and the start of piecing his life back together to become the man he was created to be. He is on his way and is, in turn, using his skill set to serve and work in the recovery community. I will always be grateful to Chico and the professionals and wonderful staff, especially Kay and Matt, for being part of the village that has helped set him back on the path of recovery and life. I highly recommend Casa Colina Treatment’s program as a meaningful part in the recovery of other men.
