At the Claudia Black Young Adult Center, we recognize that although the young adult has been singled out for treatment, the entire family has been impacted. The willingness of family members to be involved in the young adult’s treatment experience is critical to the patient’s recovery.  Therefore, we actively engage the family shortly after admission and integrate them into the treatment process, in addition to providing guidance and support.

Our family program is designed to increase healthy communication, learn skills to set healthy boundaries, and support young adults in their recovery, not in their disease. It begins with inviting family members to participate in private live skype-based webinars prior to attending our onsite 5-day family workshop. This allows for rapport building with our family counselor, who provides psychoeducation and resources needed while assessing your needs within the context of the family system.  During our onsite family week experience, the emphasis stretches beyond psychoeducation, incorporating experiential ways of learning with a strong focus on healthy communication. 

Family Is Important

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.
