Family & Adolescent
Recovery and Hope for the Entire Family.
At Horizon, we know that substance abuse affects everyone involved, not just the person who needs treatment. That’s why we’ve developed specialized mental health and substance use disorder treatment options for adolescents and their families. We’ll be there to support you and your family every step of the way.
We Offer the Following Outpatient Services:
There are times when loving someone with a substance use disorder and/or mental illness can feel overwhelming. Significant others grapple with how to set 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 be educational for all parties and provide assistance with the development of treatment goals for the individual and the family.
Multi-family Group Counseling
Multi family groups for clients and their family members promote understanding and normalization of the process necessary to rebuild healthy relationships in recovery. Group sessions focus on communication, family dynamics, and the utilization of coping skills to support recovery.
Opiate Overdose Prevention Training
This prevention method gives opiate users and their families a means to counteract overdose in opiate users. Participants will be provided with an Opiate Overdose Prevention kit containing Naloxone (Narcan), which has proven highly effective in reversing opiate overdoses. Find out more.
Parent & Family Support Coordination
Horizon believes it is imperative to engage family to support the recovery process. Horizon has implemented a Parent and Family Support Coordinator, Colleen Babcock
, to increase family involvement and client engagement in our addiction recovery services. General outreach to clients and families inquiring about Horizon’s addiction services along with Parent and Family Support weekly meetings are the focus of this new position.
Adolescent Psychiatry Program
Our Family and Recovery Center in East Amherst offers psychiatry and mental health services for adolescents. This program is designed to aid in the treatment of adolescents who have both a substance use and mental health disorder.
Don’t Wait Until Things Get Worse.
If you think your teenager might need help, the sooner you reach out for help, the better. Our Patient Support Specialists are on hand to review warning signs and symptoms of substance use and/or mental health disorders. We can connect you to the appropriate services to help get your adolescent back on track to lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
Hope is just a phone call away.
