“We consider the entire family to be our client and realize the need for their recovery, too. If everyone wants the family dynamics to change, the family as a whole needs to make a commitment to recovery,” – Dr. Claudia Black

Family involvement in the recovery process is crucial. We devote set times for family visits weekly and offer a dedicated week-long family workshop complete with lectures and experiential exercises to promote healthy communication. Family dynamics often play a role in addiction or any other issue the young adult is facing, so it’s important to provide a space for the family to effectively communicate in order to heal.

Hope For The Family

The Claudia Black Young Adult Center in Wickenburg, Arizona, provides an intensive, experientially based 45-day treatment program for young adults ages 18 – 26 who are struggling with unresolved emotional trauma, addiction, have a dual diagnosis, or who have failed past addiction treatments. Dr. Claudia Black – renowned author, speaker, and trainer who has been working with family systems and addictive disorders since the 1970s – is the clinical architect of the Claudia Black Young Adult Center.

In a safe and nurturing community composed of their peers, young adults are guided on their journey of recovery by examining the underlying causes of addiction and co-occurring disorders. The goal is for these individuals to gain the courage to face difficult issues, including grief and loss; heal from emotional trauma; and become accountable for their own feelings, behaviors, and recovery.
