What resources are available to families?
The Family Program at Natural State Recovery Centers consists of a suite of services geared at addressing the needs and identified goals of family members and loved ones that have been impacted, directly or indirectly, by the substance use and associated issues of another person.
Systems adapt to dysfunction to maintain balance and avoid catastrophic failure. We change our behaviors based on what is happening to those around us in order to keep our lives on track. These changes are a natural and normal reaction. As difficulties pile up, our ways of coping become regular patterns. In this way, the substance use and co-occurring issues of one person change the way the entire system behaves, and create roles that are very difficult to alter. Imagine if this type of dynamic has been occurring for many years. Imagine if dysfunction was introduced to the system multiple generations ago…
Family systems are extremely resilient, and with proper support and therapy, families do find happiness and balance that is not predicated on their loved one remaining abstinent from mood-altering substances. Additionally, families that enter their own therapeutic process learn effective ways to manage stress and crisis, and dramatically improve the chances of their loved one achieving long-term recovery from substance use disorders.
Like our other programs, we completely customize treatment to meet your family’s specific needs and goals, implementing a host of evidenced based therapies as appropriate.
Elements of our family program include:
Family counseling referrals
Community support groups (Alanon)
Do you offer mental health services?
Natural State Recovery Centers employs an amazing team of licensed mental health therapists and staff. All clients receive individual and group therapy.
What are the admission hours?
Admissions are open Monday-Friday 8 am to 4 pm. However, we understand how important timely treatment is so we make every effort to admit clients as soon as possible. If you are considering treatment for yourself or a loved one, fill out the online application here.
Can I contact my loved ones while in treatment?
Yes, mail is collected and delivered to clients Monday-Friday. Telephone calls are allowed during designated times. However, please note that all clients will experience a mandatory 10-day blackout period that begins when admitted. During this time, clients may receive mail, but may not receive phone calls. This blackout period is necessary to allow clients to settle into treatment and focus on building the foundation for recovery.
What is the meal schedule?
Meals are prepared onsite by the Culinary Director. Breakfast is served at 7am, lunch is served at noon, and dinner is served at 5 pm. The meal schedule is subject to vary slightly on the weekends. Vending machines with drinks and snacks in the common area accept cash and cards. For outpatient treatment, lunch is provided and served at noon.

What other resources are available?
