Addicts and alcoholics are made not born. Our residents often have grown up in troubled families. They may have gotten little or no support, or experienced emotional, physical or sexual abuse, or violence.
Alpha House assesses the family situation and uses the evaluation to work with the resident. If family involvement will help the resident’s recovery, and the resident and family agree, then Alpha House’s Family Program serves as the link between the staff, family and resident. This link might be as simple as informing the family of the resident’s progress. But if the family requests, and is committed, then a family counselor will provide therapeutic intervention to the family.
