Family Involvement

To ensure that residents successfully transition back into their school, home, and community, a comprehensive family focused treatment plan is created to address the challenges that originally brought the resident into the program. Within this plan, the family is an integral member of the team and participates in a broad range of services, programs and events, including family and group therapy, parent education and support, and multi-family therapy groups and gatherings.

Together, the therapist, resident, and family develop a progressive visitation plan that may include on-site, off-site and home visitation. Weekends and extended holiday time serve as opportunities for the family to practice the myriad of skills they’ve learned in the program.

The road leading to a residential program can often be an arduous one. Through a strong partnership between The Commons, its residents, their families, and school districts, the road leading home becomes a positive and productive one.
