CHANGES TO FAMILY EDUCATION PROGRAMMING DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
Glenbeigh believes alcoholism and addiction is a family disease. During this challenging time that our nation is facing, we have been unable to offer the traditional family programming on Sunday's. Glenbeigh is introducing an on-line meeting for family members of our patients with one of Glenbeigh's experienced counselors. Currently, virtual programming will be offered each Friday from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM and Sunday's starting at 1:30 PM. Programming will provide family members with educational information and time for questions. Please provide your email address to the admissions department (by calling 1-800-234-1001) so an invitation to the meeting can be sent to you. Thank you for your continued support as we work through COVID-19 safety precautions.

Alcohol and drug abuse affects everyone in the family, but help is available. Loved ones need support, care and attention every bit as much as the alcoholic or addict.
At Glenbeigh, we understand the anger, hopelessness, disappointment and frustration experienced by family members and loved ones. Our Family Education program teaches you how to care for yourself, work through the disruption caused by the disease and cope more effectively in all aspects of your life.
Glenbeigh's Family Education program offers support and guidance as you learn about addiction and explore recovery. Services include educational presentations, family conferences and group sessions to validate what you have been feeling and to help you develop a plan to move forward. Glenbeigh helps you realize that your family is not alone, that healing is possible and setting healthy boundaries is acceptable and can benefit everyone.
Because family participation is a crucial component of the treatment and recovery process, Glenbeigh provides this service at no additional charge. Alcoholism and drug addiction is a disease that occurs in many families. It cannot be controlled, but it can be effectively addressed with the appropriate treatment, education and guidance.
Glenbeigh is here for you. Contact us for more information on Family Education.
Family programs are also available on select weekdays at our six outpatient centers as part of Glenbeigh's Intensive Outpatient and Aftercare programs.
FA is a 12 Step fellowship for the family and friends of those individuals with drug, alcohol or related behavioral issues. Visit https://www.familiesanonymous.org/ for more information on programs and to obtain literature that can help you navigate addiction and the recovery process.
