Support System Therapy
We value relationships and align with the research which points to the benefit of including support system therapy in a client’s treatment plan. Through our support system therapy/programming we create opportunities that promote healthy relationships and effective relational boundaries for our clients and whomever they identify as their support system.
One aspect of this program is weekly support system sessions for each PHP client, as well as IOP clients who choose to do so. These are held with the client and the people in their life they identify as key to their healing and recovery.
We also host our weekly Support System Evening on Tuesdays. These evenings rotate between a shared meal and group learning experience. At our support system meal loved ones experience how to engage food and conversation around the dinner table in a helpful and healthy manner. During our group learning experiences we discuss topics like communication, love languages, Opal’s philosophy about food and movement and an array of other topics pertinent to a client’s support system being effective supporters.
It is our hope that in providing supportive experiences with clients’ support system that their “real world” will be more suited to support the recovery they have experienced while at Opal.
