Our Approach | Family
The Sanctuary Family component is an integral part of our program because families are systems and any issue affecting one person effects the entire system. This means that the family members and loved ones of people stuck in ongoing compulsive behaviors, anxiety, PTSD and depression, often become trapped in unhealthy patterns themselves. The progressive deterioration of the functioning of the family member often runs parallel to the downward spiraling of the person with the identified problem.
The Sanctuary includes a program designed to assist families and loved ones in breaking free from these dependencies, promoting their own healing and restoring a healthy family system. Our program provides family members with the opportunity to be involved in a similar experience as their loved ones, integrating the holistic approach that is the hallmark of The Sanctuary.
Unlike other family programs that are informational in nature, our family program is experiential. In addition to developing healthy communication, boundaries and future family plans, our program facilitates family members in exploring their own blocks to recovery, gain increased self-awareness and reclaim their individual right to a healthy, balanced life. We customize our program to include individual and family sessions focused on the family member. Depending on the relationship and accommodations available, family members often stay on campus and participate in activities geared toward their own wellness. Each program is customized to the needs of the individual and often take place over a four-day weekend.
