Our Family Education Program raises the standards of education and experience for those families impacted by a loved one’s addiction. The FEP addresses and provides education and support to clients and family members in recovery. The FEP brings the families of those impacted by addiction together for the purpose of education and fellowship. Statistically, it is known that individuals suffering from the disease of addiction suffer fewer relapses when their families have experienced an FEP. The FEP helps to prevent relapse and give families the opportunity to learn how to communicate and support their loved ones rather than enable the disease.

The FEP is held at our offices located at 505 Penn Street in Reading, Pennsylvania. The FEP consists of 8 workshops, as follows:

  • Disease Model of Addiction
  • Progression of Addiction
  • Impact of Families
  • Enabling vs Supportive Behavior
  • Relapse Prevention Strategies
  • Healthy Communication
  • Healthy Boundaries
  • Roles in the Family
