What support is there for the family?


We in Bushypark believe that addiction affects the entire family and we therefore encourage family and other concerned persons to be part of the recovery process.

We work with family members and concerned persons right through all the stage of the recovery process

  • Firstly we recommend that they attend the assessment stage of the process
  • During the 4 weeks of the client’s treatment we engage with the family members each Wednesday, to hold family conferences, give educational lectures and run support group.
  • When the client completes treatment we encourage the spouse/partner to attend continuing care (see continuing care section above)
  • We encourage families to attend the fellowship meetings of AL ANON, NAR ANON, GAM ANON to assist with their own recovery. List of contacts and meeting is provided
  • We also refer families to family therapy services where necessary – this service is funded under the National Drugs Strategy
  • Various workshops are held for couples and for family members to assist with recovery.
