Any treatment would be incomplete without the inclusion of the families who suffer alongside their addict/alcoholic. Often family members become very ill from the ravaging effects of their loved one’s addiction. Specifically, the excruciating and paralytic condition parents find themselves in can be addressed and families can and do heal while the addict/alcoholic is transitioning. Sustain Recovery is the vehicle through which family members “detach with love,” while being directed to support groups of their own, through which they may begin to speak the “language of recovery,” the same language we are asking their loved ones to speak. Weekly family therapy is mandatory for all families and provided in person or via approved electronic methods by a Masters Level LMFT.

I first met Sayeh in November of 2013 just after my 15 year old daughter had been admitted to a residential treatment program. As part of the program I was required to attend 2-3 AlAnon meetings a week. Sayeh attended the same AlAnon meetings as well as Alumni events as I. It soon became apparent to me that Sayeh had a heart for recovery, program, and God. When I was encouraged to get a sponsor I didn’t hesitate. Dependable, respectful, kind and generous of spirit, she exudes an inner peace that I hope to achieve with her loving guidance, as I work my own program. She is patient, & full of wisdom that she is always happy to share with her sponsees and fellow parents. I am so grateful our journeys brought us together.
