On a monthly basis the Palm Partners treatment program offers an opportunity for the families of patients to attend events and therapy over the course of an empowering and productive weekend. There are a series of work-shops and group activities they can participate in, and loved ones are always welcomed and encouraged to get involved in their loved ones treatment process.
Countless mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives have taken this chance to not only support their loved ones in this stage of their recovery, but also to learn more about the disease of addiction, which often is an enlightening and life changing experience.
After a weekend full of exciting challenges and intimate counseling, families have so much to say about the Palm Partners family program, so we have given them a chance to share those thoughts in hopes to inspire others.
One family has 3 relatives of the patient come and get involved, and each wrote a short testimony, which we have included below:
I loved the information that helped me realize my moms diseases deeper. Also becoming so connected with all the families that are going through the same situations.
Heidi and Dug really get to the important points and help happiness and positivity come from this experience, not just anger. That’s all I can ask for is to look for the positive outcomes and look towards the future.
It was amazing. How the brain works with alcohol. How we need to take care of ourselves. Dug and Heidi were fantastic!!!
Hearing the same stories from others about their loved ones and that we are not alone.
I really liked Dug and Heidi. They had so much energy and made the class so interesting.
I liked breaking the boards.
These 3 brief descriptions actually have a lot to say about how the Palm Partners family program, like how it is built to not just educate the addict, but to educate and empower the families as well.
Some of the events are actually a lot of fun and kind of shake off the anxiety of having to face the loved ones who you have experienced such hardships with, and those bonds are often strengthened through the entire process.
So if you’re considering whether or not to get treatment, take into account what resources are available for those closest to you to get involved in your care and rebuilding your future. The Palm Partners family program is an incredible way for you to let your loved ones be part of that growth so you can nurture one another.
