“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,” says Dr. Claudia Black, clinical architect of the Claudia Black Young Adult Center and Senior Fellow at The Meadows.
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.
