Family Program

What is TLR’s Family Program?

mother and son at last resort Family ProgramThe Last Resort offers a Family Program in Austin Texas specifically designed for family members and friends of our clients.  This is a powerful 2 1/2 day program offered once per month. The goal of the weekend is to bring clients and their families together to better understand addiction and to provide support and resources to family members and friends.

Our family therapy program is unique and the feedback we have received confirms that our program is and has been extremely valuable in the family’s recovery process.

The Family Program is held in small intimate group settings (average 8-10 families), is interactional with time for immediate questions, is experiential (family sculpting and equine therapy experiences), and provides group and individual family therapy by licensed professional therapists.

It is highly recommended that families attend the family therapy program as we believe that families are key in helping in their loved one’s recovery.

Family Therapy Program Testimonials

“There are times that one may go to an institution to visit and there is strict control over where one can go geographically on the campus. At no time did we feel that anything was being hidden from us or that there was some other agenda in play. The educational elements along with the therapeutic elements of the program were extremely important to us in understanding the overall treatment for your clients and our time interacting with our son was so much more meaningful because of the family therapy program. We did not know what to expect and had mild anxiety about the program, but the staff made the experience very relaxing and valuable.” (Parents of son- 1st time in treatment)

“I learned so much and am so grateful that I went. I loved our equine therapy sessions so much- those horses were like truth serum. It was amazing to witness.” (wife of husband -1st time in treatment).

“I would like to thank you and the family therapy program for three of the most enlightening days of my life. The exercises we participated in and being able to see our son’s world as he sees it is something I will not forget. Thank you for what you do.”  (Father of son who has been to multiple treatment centers)

It was amazing experience.  The families that were there have bonded and we are all praying for our “boys”.  Thank you all for putting together this experience for us so we can have a better understanding of what they have gone through and will continue to go through.” (Grandmother of son – 3rd time in treatment)

Seeking Texas Rehab Program For Brother

What can I do if my brother is struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism? Substance abuse is a disease, one that affects millions of Americans per year. And if your brother is suffering from drug abuse or alcoholism, he’s not alone. But he does need to make a change.

Drug addiction not only has severe consequences for the person who is addicted (such as major health concerns including the risk of fatal drug overdose and death) but also impacts the family a large way. Far from being a victimless crime, as some people think of it, drug addiction actually has severe and wide-ranging consequences for everyone surrounding the person who struggles with addiction. And when that person is your brother, it can be hard to know where to turn. That’s where our family therapy program in Austin Texas can help.

Don’t give up. There are ways that you can help your brother with his substance abuse, whether it’s a drug dependency on alcohol dependency. Our Texas addiction treatment program realizes that meth destroys families.

How Do I Approach My Brother About His Addiction?

What are some of the ways I can help my brother with his drinking problem or drug abuse? First of all, you can take a moment to reflect on how lucky your brother is to have you, a member of a community that’s committed to supporting him. And that’s one of the most important things you can do for your brother.

Make sure he knows that you are on his side. Emphasize that you are here to support him. You want the best for him. You’re worried about him. Once he realizes that you’re not judging him and that you truly just wish to help, then it can become much easier for you to help him get the treatment that could save his life.

Seeking Specialized Rehab Program For My Brother

What’s the most important thing in helping my brother fight drug addiction or alcoholism? Study after study has demonstrated the same clear facts. The right course of drug addiction treatment, or alcoholism treatment, at a high-quality rehab center is by far the best way for someone to overcome addiction or chemical dependency. By checking into the right program of rehab, your brother can gain access to specialists and supportive staff, people who are professional and well trained in helping him overcome addiction. Through our family therapy in Austin Texas you can be a part of his recovery and support team.

For many drugs, or even alcohol, the detox process can be dangerous or even deadly. That’s why it’s so important to have the right medical supervision to help you through the process of detoxification and withdrawal symptoms. Click here to learn more about The Last Resort drug rehab program.

Seeking Treatment For Father

How can I help my father get the treatment that he needs? It’s tough to be in a position where someone in your family is using drugs or alcohol. It can be hard to know what to do. How can you help the person who’s struggling with substance abuse? Drug or alcohol addiction is often called a victimless crime, but anyone who’s been involved in a family where substance abuse exists knows that this isn’t true.

The addiction of one family member impacts all family members. So if your dad is suffering from drug or alcohol dependency, you need to help him overcome his substance abuse problem. But though might seem hopeless sometimes, remember that there are ways that you can help. Click here to learn more about how meth is destroying families across Texas.

How Do I Talk To My Father About His Addiction?

What are some of the ways I can help my father with his substance abuse, such as drug addiction or alcoholism? First of all, remember not to judge. Millions of Americans get caught up in alcoholism or drug addiction, whether it’s to illegal drugs such as meth, cocaine, heroin, PCP, or prescription medications such as OxyContin, Percocet, or Vicodin.

But remember, addiction is a disease. Your father is the victim of a disease. Approaching him from a non-judgmental standpoint can make it much easier for you and him. Approach him in a gentle and supportive manner. Make sure to emphasize that you’re on his side and you’re doing this to help him. Once you reach that place of understanding, it’s much easier to encourage him to get the rehab that he needs.

How Can Professional Texas Rehab Help My Dad?

Because, after all, that’s truly his best weapon in the fight against substance abuse: rehab. Studies have shown time and time again that the right program of drug addiction treatment can mean the difference between life and death in cases of substance abuse. In the case of your father, help him get the drug rehab that he needs can save his life, as well as improve your family’s life. Enroll in our family therapy in Austin Texas to help your father recover.

Remember, too, that he might be tempted to try overcoming addiction on his own. But that can be dangerous or even deadly in the case of some drugs—as well is not as effective as drug rehab. Click here to learn more about our 90 day rehabilitation program.

Seeking Rehab Program For Your Husband?

How can I help my husband if he’s suffering from drug addiction or alcoholism? Drug addiction and alcoholism are both very common in America right now. And it’s also a very disastrous consequence for families all over the country. If your husband is suffering from drug addiction and alcoholism, he’s not alone. And you’re not alone in trying to help. Though it may seem hopeless sometimes, there so exist resources that can help your husband in his struggle against substance abuse or chemical dependency.

Remember that drug addiction and alcoholism are not victimless crimes. Addiction experienced by one member of the family impacts the entire family. But the good news is that you can help your husband overcome addiction and change his life. By doing so, you can actually be literally saving his life at the same time.

What Can I Do To Help?

How can I help my husband with his drug addiction or alcohol abuse? When your husband is taking drugs or has a drinking problem, it can put you in a very hard position. How can you approach him without making it seem like you’re being judgmental or accusatory? First, make sure to emphasize to him that you’re on his side. You’re worried about him. You just want to see him get the help that he needs. You can tell him that you know drug addiction is a disease, one that he suffers from and it’s not his fault. Speak to him about our family therapy program in Austin Texas. Show him you are there to support him through this.

Once he realizes that you’re on his side and you’re trying to help him, then it can become far easier for you to help him get the help that he needs at a high-quality drug rehab center. Click here to learn more about our Texas substance abuse treatment options.

How Can A Specialized Rehab and Family Program Help My Husband?

What can drug or alcohol rehab do for my husband? When your husband is suffering from some form of substance abuse, whether it’s drug addiction or alcoholism, remember that it isn’t safe or effective for him to try to quit on his own.

The research also shows time and time again that it can be difficult or even impossible for people to overcome addiction by themselves, without any help. Not only that, but it can actually be highly dangerous for someone to detox from common drugs, such as OxyContin—or even alcohol.

By going to the right program of drug addiction or alcohol treatment, your husband can get the correct medical supervision he needs in order to detox safely, overcome withdrawal symptoms, and work through his addiction with a supportive, highly trained staff.

There’s no better way to help your husband get the help he needs than the right program of drug addiction or alcohol treatment.
