Support for Families

You are not alone.

Evolve offers support groups for families while their teens are in treatment. We believe it’s impossible to understand a teenager without understanding underlying family dynamics. Therefore, we encourage family members, caregivers, and loved ones to participate in the treatment and recovery process while their teen is under our care.

When possible, families regularly attend individual family therapy, multi-family support groups, and parenting Groups. It’s crucial for families to learn recovery skills alongside their kids. As your child learns the lessons they need to recover, we teach you how you can support them during treatment, how you can support yourself during treatment, and what to expect when your child comes home from treatment.

Off-Site Resources

We connect you with support groups for families such as:

You Don’t Have to Reinvent the Wheel

These groups exist for the sole purpose of helping families and loved ones of individuals struggling with substance abuse, addiction, or mental health problems. We know you may feel isolated, alone, and misunderstood, just like your teen did before they enter treatment. It may be hard to walk into one of these support groups for the first time, but we encourage all Evolve families to take advantage of these resources.

Thousands of families have been where you are right now, and they’re willing to share their experiences with you. They’ll give you hugs, shoulders to cry on, tough love, or stories that will have you laughing through tears. They’ll give you empathy, compassion, understanding, and the knowledge that although the road to recovery may not be easy, it is within reach: they’re living proof.
