Family support: the key to success
Family participation in IOP is the leading indicator of your loved one’s treatment success. During their time in treatment at Charlie Health, it’s critical that your loved one knows that you are as committed to their success and healing as they are.
Family support at Charlie Health includes family therapy, family support programming, and special events. Our clinicians are routinely trained in leading evidence-based family therapy treatment techniques and have the opportunity to consult frequently with family therapy experts.
We’re here to help you and your family every step of the way with tools to help you learn how to best support your loved one–and care for yourself.
Our family support groups are developed to support family members of our clients, including support, education, skills, and self-care groups.
