Family Sessions

At Mash-ka-wisen, we know how important family involvement is to recovery. Both programs provide family members the opportunity to participate in therapeutic family sessions. In these sessions, our goal is to promote healing. Of those who have participated in family sessions last year, 94% saw an improvement in family communication.

In our family sessions, we discuss  

  • Client progress
  • Chemical dependency and its effects on the family
  • Amends that may need to be made
  • Aftercare recommendations

Help with transportation and lodging costs may be available when travel distance is more than fifty miles.
