The family program can be attended by anyone with an interest in that program’s education and process related to understanding addiction illness, the family system in that context, and everyone’s personal well-being. Family program can be attended by anyone, even those that never have a family member in any level of care at Pavillon. Professionals working in our field often come through our Family Program for continuing education as well as to benefit themselves personally and professionally.

The fallout of addiction profoundly affects your loved ones and your entire family. 

In this sense, recovery is most effective when everyone in your family is involved in the process. This helps you all understand the dynamics of the disease and its path for treatment. 

Housing for Family Support Program


When you don’t know how to deal with the disease, you or other family members can contribute to its progressive dysfunction. This is exactly why Pavillon has a long-standing philosophy of offering, and strongly encouraging, support and education for families of addicted individuals.

Additionally, your loved one’s behavior changes after treatment, which also affects your family. When you learn to properly support your family member, you can ease your own suffering and promote total family healing.
