Ferguson BHC builds and develops a safe environment that allows our families to break the cycle of addiction and begin the journey of family recovery. We are dedicated in providing support, as well as the development of specific plans for family, friends, and co-workers that have a loved one suffering from addiction. We aim to move from crisis into solution. Addiction problems may include alcoholism, substance abuse, gambling, sexual disorders, and food disorders. We operate from a Family Systems standpoint, which keeps family involvement high whether or not the identified patient goes to treatment. We work extensively with the family to ensure every member receives the support they need around addiction and codependency. A majority of work with families involves recommendations for ongoing family therapeutic work, either with individual therapy, group therapy, or an intensive workshop. More information about these resources can be found on our resources page.
When guided by a professional interventionist, almost all intervention teams that may include parents, friends, and co-workers are effective and result in the addicted person entering a therapeutic treatment program. A well-executed intervention process aims to move the addicted youth or adult from the cycle of crisis and provide motivation to immediately begin taking steps toward recovery, which may include entering a detox center and receiving medical care, residential treatment, therapy, and behavioral counseling. Though some of the behavior the family has been seeing is devastating, most of these behaviors and associated problems are lessened or vanish after someone has begun working in a recovery program.
Being stuck in a cycle of fear and regret is not a happy or healthy way to live. As much as a family would like or want these problems to go away on their own, they simply won’t without help and action.
And that’s why we’re here.
We are available to travel anywhere in the world to work with a family and are able to react quickly as we recognize that families are in crisis when they call us. We generally are available to work with families on the ground within 24 hours of the first call.
