Who We Help: Families and Loved Ones

If a loved one is affected by addiction, trauma, or mental illness, your entire family deserves support.

Addiction Is a Family Struggle

When a loved one battles addiction or mental illness, it’s natural to want to help them. However, knowing where to start can be difficult.

And, whether you’ve been supporting your child, partner, sibling, or parent for a few days or many years, their struggle inevitably takes a toll on you. Your relationship can suffer due to distrust, worry, fear, or even violence. You may think your loved one’s illness is your fault, or turn to substances yourself for relief. Research shows that children of people with mental health or substance use disorders are at risk of depression and addiction. In order to be there for them, you need to be able to take care of yourself.

How We Help You

EHN Canada’s treatment centres offer programs to support parents, children, siblings, and loved ones of people in treatment. We help you improve your loved one’s chances of lasting recovery by equipping you with the knowledge and skills you need to support them, and yourself.

Our treatment centre programming includes:

  • Family Education Workshop: A three half-day workshop that educates family members on mental health and substance use disorders and how they impact families.
  • Insite Program: This four half-day program allows loved ones to digest what they learned in the Family Education Workshop and focus on deeper individual reflection.
  • Family Process Group: A weekly support group for families impacted by addiction or mental illness.
  • Please contact our family programs team for an update on future dates post COVID-19 restrictions at [email protected].

What We Treat

If you want to help a loved one seek evidence-based treatment for addiction or mental illness, you’ve come to the right place. We have programs for whatever your family member is struggling with. Below are just some of the concerns we treat.
