Family Week: Involving Family and Loved Ones
At Center For Change we are committed to treating the whole person in order to provide the best possible foundation for continuing to walk the path of recovery. With our comprehensive focus, we work to involve families and loved ones as much as possible in the inpatient and residential programs. To facilitate this, we offer a Family Week program and strongly encourage family members, spouses, and loved ones to take an active part.
Family Week at Center For Change is a chance for family members to spend time with their loved one who is in treatment, to get an “insider” view of our program, and to actively participate in therapeutic experiences designed to help families and clients support one another in recovery. Family Week consists of eating disorder psycho-education groups, dietary education, multi-family therapy group, recreation therapy, and experiential therapy groups focused on helping families learn, experience, communicate, change, and grow together. Family Week is an exceptional time for family members who do not live in the area to be with their loved one for therapeutic passes and activities, and to participate in face-to-face family and/or marital therapy and dietician counseling. We offer two Family Week tracks: Track One is for first time attendees, and Track Two is for returning family members who could benefit from an additional session. Family Week is offered monthly and runs Thursday morning through Monday afternoon.

For most people, the holiday season is a wonderful time of year. It is often a time of family reunion, socializing, and celebration – a time when families, friends, and coworkers come together to share good will and good food. Yet, for those who suffer with eating disorders, this is often the worst time of the year.
