At Tree House Recovery, our National Family Program is focused on providing support for parents of addicts. While your son or loved one is recovering from addiction, we help you learn ways to support their long term sobriety. We believe the best kind of rehab is the kind you only need once and forming a familial network of support and common understanding is key for sustainable sobriety. 

The family program consists of weekly sessions for parents of people in recovery. In these sessions, you will learn a common recovery language that you can use to communicate with your child, how to form and keep healthy boundaries, and how to rebuild trust. Addiction takes a tremendous toll on family members and is designed to empower you to a healthier optimized self. Call us today at (855) 202-2138 to more about a program built for parents and loved ones of addicts.


Healing Codependency, repairing relationships, and building a stronger you.

Whether you are living with someone who’s struggling with addiction or are the parent of someone currently enrolled in Tree House Recovery, our family program can help you. We can show you how to cultivate your capacity for honesty and forgiveness, to release blame, and let go of past trauma and drama.
