Family & Adolescent

Recovery and Hope for the Entire Family.

We know that a person’s substance use or mental illness affects everyone in their life. That’s why we’ve developed specialized mental health and substance use disorder treatment options for patients and their families. We’ll be there to support you and your family every step of the way.

We offer the following outpatient services for families and adolescents:

Individual family member treatment

There are times when loving someone with a substance use disorder and/or mental illness can feel overwhelming. Significant others grapple with setting healthy boundaries, how to communicate their own needs, and how to take care of themselves. Individual therapy with someone who specializes in working with family members affected by substance abuse and/or a mental health disorder is available.

Family Counseling Sessions

All family members who have someone involved in mental health or substance use disorder treatment are encouraged to join in family sessions. These sessions are designed to engage the family in their loved ones recovery process, resolve family conflicts and achieve family reconciliation.

Multi-family Group Counseling

Multi-family groups for clients and their family members promote understanding, sharing and support in rebuilding healthy relationships in recovery. Group sessions focus on family communication and relationships, and the development of coping skills to support recovery.

Opiate Overdose Prevention Training

This training gives opiate users and their families education to prevent opioid overdoses. Participants receive education regarding opiate overdose symptoms. They also are trained in the use of Naloxone/Narcan to counteract overdoses and how to access it. Find out more.

Parent & Family Support Coordination

Horizon believes that it is essential to engage families to support their loved ones’ recovery. Horizon has designated Parent and Family Support Coordinators to improve patient engagement through increased family involvement in our substance use services. Coordinators provide phone and face-to-face outreach to patients and families who are inquiring about Horizon’s substance use services, and weekly Parent and Family Support meetings. These meetings focus on families and loved ones achieving a better understanding of substance use, recovery resources and treatment options.
