TO REVIVE LIFE HOUSE
Important Information for Revive Life House familIes
To facilitate a successful addiction recovery program, it is important for family members to understand that we are in this battle for sobriety for your loved one together. There are certain things that we ask you to do and not to do, all to assist in the client’s journey to recovery from the grip of addiction.
As we get to know our new client, we’d like to get to know you too. We would like to have a written testimony about how your loved one’s addiction has impacted you and those around you. Please be specific and share with honesty any feelings that this time has invoked. You can send them to email@example.com with “Family Testimony” as the subject line.
We ask that you trust the staff over the client concerning their addiction. While the journey to defeating addiction can be a long one, we ask that you trust our decisions as to when the resident will be ready to go to work, make/receive phone calls, onsite or home visits, corrections and/or disciplinary action, and when they will be ready for release. Those who are undergoing treatment in our addiction recovery program must see the staff and family as a 100% unified front that will not be manipulated by the addiction behaviors of the resident. For instance, it is very important that we prevent playing one side against the other, and any additional emotional manipulations they may attempt.
We ask that you always report any unauthorized contact. This includes phone calls from a resident that originate any place other than Revive Life House. Additionally, without the prior arrangement with a case manager or staff member, these contact attempts should be treated as suspect and reported as such.
Please do not encourage disobedience.
Our mission is simple. We are a dynamic recovery program that restores lives through an inward journey leading to lifelong wholeness. We do this by creating a safe and welcoming environment where persons suffering from Substance Use Disorder (SUD) can find help, freedom and purpose for their lives as we have since opening in 2016.
