Do you have a child in a treatment program that will be coming home in the next 4-6 months?
Do you have a child that has already transitioned home but you would like some help?
We invite you to join us for “Transitioning Home.” This is a collaborative effort, developed by parents who have been through this process, along with professionals highly successful in this field.
We are delighted to have Coyote Coast Youth and Family Services join us for this workshop. Their staff is skilled at assisting families with transition planning. This workshop is intended to support and further cement the positive changes your family has made while your teen has been away in a treatment program.
Topics that will be covered:
Preparing for Transition
What to Expect/Preparing for the unexpected
Structure, Boundaries and Limits
Being Real with Teen Rules/Commitments
Being Real with Parent Follow through/Commitments
What is Important in a Family Home Agreement
Setbacks and Consequences
We believe that transition is the backbone to recovery. It is a crucial step in the recovery cycle for teens and their families whether returning home from a program or venturing out into an independent lifestyle. Our mission is to encourage all families to view this time as an opportunity to support their teen returning home, to reexamine their relationships, and to reunite and rebuild a healthy family environment. Parents play a major role in their young person’s long term success post-treatment.
