Family Day

As part of our commitment to helping families navigate the challenges of healing, The Retreat is pleased to offer Family Day.

Even in the most balanced family, difficult relationship patterns can develop. For patients at The Retreat, addressing relationship patterns becomes even more important, as there is a good chance that patients and their families have experienced feelings of loss, hurt, sadness, or anger, around recent and past experiences. Family Day is designed to help families work through the array of emotions and challenges that may arise while a patient is receiving treatment at The Retreat.

Objectives:

• Work collaboratively as a family to achieve emotional health
• Learn more effective ways to support your family member
• Learn how family members’ actions (positively or negatively) affect each other
• Foster the balance of providing “support” and “setting limits”
• Develop increased awareness of your own needs as your family goes through this difficult time
