Addiction Recovery Support for Families

You are not alone, although we understand that it can feel that way.
Sometimes, the support from others who are going through the same challenges is exactly what you need. When your loved one struggles with addiction, your family struggles too. At Fairbanks, we understand how important family support is and encourage family involvement as part of the overall recovery process.

Family members must understand what their loved one is going through, which is why we provide family support and education for adults and adolescents. We teach families about alcohol, drug abuse and addiction, while providing the necessary support to help the entire family cope during this difficult and confusing time.

While participating in the treatment programs here at Fairbanks, you have the opportunity to speak with your loved one’s primary counselor. Family sessions may be scheduled to enable everyone to gain more insight and education about addiction. Fairbanks also incorporates inpatient visitation for adolescents and young adults with family programs.
