We Understand the Importance of Family

INTER-CARE recognizes addiction as a family disease and the importance of providing services for all those who have been affected by a loved one’s addiction. We have seen time and time again what a vital role the family plays in the treatment process and that it is not the addict alone that needs help and support.

The roadblocks to providing family treatment covered by insurance companies are staggering. Help us support the spouses, partners, siblings, children and all loved ones who come to us in pain and desperately need a guiding hand.


Family Orientation Program

The family orientation program helps engage the family with an introduction to the cycle of addiction, an overview of treatment modalities, strategies on how to heal as a family and information and referral for support groups and family counseling.
